Thanks, I'm sure this will avoid more problems than it adds. This broke the mpi-10 patch more than usual, since it alters the rec file names. I know you'd not be too unhappy to see that one fade away :-) but I'll probably try to fix it and submit a modified patch soon. For some jobs, the MPI patch is of great benefit (at least I believe so). Should I still create a diff against plain john? For the last couple of revisions of john + jumbo, I've used a private mpi diff created after jumbo (that is, I just manually fixed the rejects and made a new diff) which tend to result in less hand editing.
