Subject: Win32 Standalone Bleeding Jumbo warning

When I run the latest versions outside cygwin (in cmd.exe), I see
these messages when I use -pipe for instance...
Warning: '/dev/shm' does not exists or is not a directory.

POSIX shared memory objects require the existance of this directory.
Create the directory '/dev/shm' and set the permissions to 01777.
For instance on the command line: mkdir -m 01777 /dev/shm
Loaded 5 password hashes with no different salts (NT [MD4 128/128 SSE2 + 32/32])
Warning: no OpenMP support for this hash type, consider --fork=16
Session aborted
And I noticed some specific references to *nix specifica paths in the conf file
# If this file exists, john will abort cleanly
AbortFile = /var/run/john/abort

# While this file exists, john will pause
PauseFile = /var/run/john/pause

Should those not be $JOHN?
(e.g.)Statsfile = $JOHN/stats

When I use the Cygwin env, the command runs with no warnings, but I do
have to issue
"stty echo" to see my console input again, this is the command:

./john.exe -stdout -external=sequence | ./john.exe -session=123
pass.txt -format=nt -pipe -rules=single

Using Cmd and Cygwin the commands appear to work, it's just the
warning I wanted to tell you about.
