If you don't need the log, you may symlink it to /dev/null, or in jumbo
you may use the -nolog option.

The brackets seem to be used for range formatting in the .conf and thus you can't just enclose a bracket in the brackets (or can I?). For the last letter I have no problem because I can simply put a "[" as a line in the wordlist.

doc/RULES says:

There are some special characters in rules ("[" starts a preprocessor
character list, "-" marks a range inside the list, etc.)  You should
prefix them with a backslash ("\") if you want to put them inside a rule
without using their special meaning.
