Subject: GECOS + single mode problem in JtR


vmsdump file (attached) has the actual passwords in the GECOS field.
However, john still fails to crack the hashes. Any ideas why?

After manually extracting the passwords from the GECOS field and using
them as input dictionary, john successfully cracks all the hashes.

Is single cracking mode broken?
