Subject: john.pot problem

Apologies if this is just user error, but I'm having a strange problem
that I haven't run into in the past.  I'm executing JtR 1.79 patched
with john-1.7.9-allopencl-04.diff in the background with the following:

./john --rules --format=cryptmd5opencl --wordlist=<path to my dict>
/home/dlaporte/hashes &

John runs overnight and cracks 2 hashes:

[dlaporte@...ry run]$ tail -2 john.log
0:10:11:11 + Cracked user4
0:16:26:36 + Cracked user7
[dlaporte@...ry run]$ ./john --status
guesses: 2  time: 0:23:32:05 7%  c/s: 46499

However, the pot is empty:

[dlaporte@...ry run]$ ls -al john.pot
-rw-------. 1 dlaporte dlaporte 0 Jan 12 09:13 john.pot

I've sent a SIGHUP which updates the "--status" data, but the pot still
remains empty:

[dlaporte@...ry run]$ kill -HUP 3698 # john's PID
[dlaporte@...ry run]$ ./john --status
guesses: 2  time: 0:23:33:12 7%  c/s: 46497

Am I missing something obvious here?
