I fixed this one now. It does allow a string because a literal string 
"tab" or "TAB" is translated to the tab character, and you can also give 
any ASCII character in the format "\x09". But now it bails with error if 
some unusable string is used.

$ ../run/john --field-separator-char=€ -show
trying to use an invalid field separator char: € (must be single byte 

That error message is somewhat ugly (I copied an existing one). Maybe it 
should be prepended with "Error: ".
