I cannot confirm this problem. I have passwords with these characters in my john.pot. (I am not using Windows, but it should not matter.) I've just tested with the above password ("34~56asdfghj") hashed as LM and NTLM, and it got cracked with JtR 1.7.2 + Alain's patch just fine (for both hash types). Obviously, for the LM hash, I needed to run the wordlist with --rules to get the second half cracked (with the "-s x**" rule). What hash type are you cracking? Can you please provide a specific example - a line from a password file that you run John on and the corresponding plaintext password that John fails to crack?
