That is an informational message, not an error (the last 2 lines of the message). It will likely go away in a -2 update to the performace patch. It is information, but more or less debugging information that was left in. It is simply telling you that this small dictionary file is being loaded into memory and accessed from there, and not from disk. It is a performance gain for john, and for some things (like rule processing that would normally read and re-read the file many times), it is a significant performance gain.
