Subject: john the ripper output

   I want to leave jtr running do crack a whole bunch of passwords and 
I'm having trouble with how to do the output. I'm trying to do:

./john passwordfile > john.progress 2>&1 &

but this outputs nothing to the file john.progress while it's running 
and only dumps all it's output to the file when the program finished 
which isn't so useful if I'm gonna leave it running for days and wanna 
tail that file once in a while....

I believe this must be a john thing since this works for other programs...

Can anybody tell me how to do this?
