Now I am able to reproduce.

I always started john from the run directory and used ./john.
If I move to the src directory and use ../run/john, completion for
hidden options doesn't work.

Now I found the culprit in line 142 of the script.
Here I concatenate the options from the regular usage output and the
output of --list=hidden-options.
But instead of the name that is used to invoke john, I use "./john" for
This needs to be replaced by  ${first}
Otherwise completion only works as long as you are in the run directory
and as long as the binary is called john.

Feel free to correct this or wait until I submit a patch.
