Can you explain what you're trying to achieve by running: kai 11232 1700 0.0 2413320 7436 ? Sl Aug12 25756:30 ./john --test-full=0 --format=bitcoin for a day now? Are you hoping to trigger this crash? If so, no, I don't expect you will: I only saw it happen (twice) when running "--test-full=0" without "--format=bitcoin". It is quite clear that having other formats test-full'ed prior to Bitcoin is a prerequisite to triggering this crash. Also, how did you achieve that this process is running for a day and is not terminating? Normally, even a full test of the Bitcoin format won't be taking this long, would it? And, do you have an idea why this process tends to consume exactly 1700% of CPU (17 active threads)? I checked /proc/11232/environ and to my surprise I did not find OMP_NUM_THREADS=17 in there. Can you explain? I think that the only thing you're achieving so far is preventing others from using super for benchmarking. So please stop. Thanks, Alexander
