Subject: "--config" option


I was recently emailed that my script isn't working with
recent John Jumbo patches. I traced the problem to my "--config" option
hack (it always returns an "Invalid options combination or duplicate
option" error). I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
We've always been running the script with an older version of John,
which, for some reason, didn't exhibit the problem.

I've attached a patch which I think resolves the problem. Unfortunately,
I'm not confident that I understand which flags should be set on an
option of this type. I was hoping someone could take a quick look it. If
it seems sane, I'll uploaded it to the wiki.
