Is it being made use of in this case?  If you use the official binary
build of john-1.7.9-jumbo-5 (, then it brings its own
copies of relevant Cygwin DLLs.

I've just tried almost the same command on a Linux build of
john-1.7.9-jumbo-5 - it works just fine.  Indeed, it's a different
build, the system is different, and I don't have your specific
hash-10-2011.txt, so I used another file with NTLM hashes.

Looks like not the official build.  I think the official one would print
SSE2i here (due to the -sse2i make target I used).

Can you try the official build and report back, please?

Of course, it'd be desirable to figure out the cause of the segfault on
your build anyway...

Thank you for reporting this!
