Hopefully it will be re-reported to this list, but this is a heads up. Yes, thanks. A fix of this nature is also needed for the Linux/PowerPC targets. I'm not sure if the same fix proposed by mc-sammer would make things better or worse on Linux - we'd need to test (and I'd need to ask a friend for access to a Linux/PowerPC box again). I'm not sure if merging a fix like this in jumbo is a good idea or not. The issue is in core, and fixing it properly requires testing on multiple systems. For future occasions, please don't post e-mail addresses to GitHub or other public places without obfuscation. As you can see, GitHub itself did not obfuscate the john-dev list address that you posted. Sure, this address is technically public in many places, but luckily the major archives do obfuscate it. An extra mention of it in public, especially without any obfuscation and with a mailto: tag (like we have on GitHub now) means that I'll have to wade through more spam (the list is pre-moderated for posts from yet unknown addresses, so that we don't get any spam distributed to subscribers). Thanks, Alexander
