Oh, this must be a consequence of us running via sudo, as we sort of
have to in order to access Epiphany.  I think if you "sudo bash" and
then "su -" and run john from this logged-in-as-root session, the
problem will go away.

Unfortunately, I don't recall the rationale behind this "tcgetpgrp(fd) !=
getpid()" check - namely, what would be wrong with this check omitted.
Can you try removing it and see what happens?
