I was wrong. JtR does indeed try to use your Extra characters to look up likely adjacent ones, which results in misbehavior when these characters are out of range (CHARSET_MIN to CHARSET_MAX). As you've found out, JtR 22.214.171.124+ correctly detects this problem but produces an incorrect error message. I will fix that. The correct solution for you is to rebuild JtR with the CHARSET_* settings that I had provided in an earlier posting. Yes, you'll have to generate a new .chr file, too.
