Try putting that hash after the first delimiter instead of the des hash, 
and JtR will properly identify them as BF (OpenBSD blowfish). They are 
extremely slow, just trying one single cleartext against all hashes will 
take minutes. It seems to be OMP enabled in JtR though I never saw it 

I believe they will end up the same password as the corresponding des 
hash when both are available but I haven't confirmed it. They will not 
be truncated at seven bits and length 8 though, so they would sometimes 
need mangling from the des password, somewhat like NT vs LM cracking.
