Here's what I am getting with it, vs. 1.7.9's incremental mode with the
same CHARSET_* settings and the same training and test sets.

For my testing, I ran "shuf" on the full RockYou list (32.6M passwords).
Then I split the resulting shuffled list in two: exactly 1M for test
set, and the rest (about 31.6M) for training set.  There's no overlap
between the two, but some of the passwords that occurred in the original
RockYou list more than once also occur in both sets.  This simulates
what happens with common passwords across two different yet similar
sites, where cracked (or otherwise known) passwords from one are then
used to attack hashes from the other.

$ shuf r > rs1
$ head -1000000 rs1 > rs1a
$ tail +1000001 rs1 > rs1b
$ wc -l rs1?
  1000000 rs1a
 31603388 rs1b
 32603388 total
$ sed 's/^/:/' < rs1b > john.pot
$ perl -ne 'chomp; print "dummy:", "\$dummy\$", unpack("H*", $_), "\n";' < rs1a > pw1

#define CHARSET_MIN			0x01
#define CHARSET_MAX			0xff
#define CHARSET_LENGTH			24

JtR 1.7.9 took almost 4 minutes to generate a .chr file with these
settings from the .pot file above.  The new version with the patch I
posted takes under 50 seconds to do the same (indeed, the .chr file is
different - it's for the new version, too).  This is on Xeon E5420
(using one core).

JtR 1.7.9 cracking run with status printed after 1k, 10k, 100k, 1M, 10M,
100M, 1G candidates tested:

The new version with the patch I posted (for same candidate counts):

Another test, trained on 1000 passwords only:

$ head -1000 rs1b | sed 's/^/:/' > john.pot

yet cracking the same 1M dummy hashes as above.

To get these status lines printed at the right times, I use a revision
of the AutoStatus external mode with these two lines added at the end of
its filter():

	abort = (interval == 1000000000);
	interval *= 10;
