Looking at the test suite, I realized:

1. that the same error occurs here (because stderr is redirected to

2. that john.bash_completion (similar to uses --subformat=LIST
as a fallback if --list=subformats is not implemented in the current
john version.
So, line 303 of john.bash_completion also needs that redirection of stderr.

And these are the lines that need to be changed in the test suite:

$ grep -n ">JohnDynaUsage.Scr"
369:			system ("$JOHN_EXE --list=subformats >JohnDynaUsage.Scr 2>&1");
372:			system ("$JOHN_EXE --subformat=LIST >JohnDynaUsage.Scr 2>&1");
