Subject: magnum-jumbo does not find john.rec using --status without argument

It seems that magnum-jumbo have a problem with --status without
session name. I expected following: without session name john would
pick .rec for status that it just used for cracking without session
name. More, old Debian's john 1.7.8 (though installed system wide)
finds its john.rec in ~/.john well. But new john does not find it:

$ git clone
$ cd magnum-jumbo/src
$ make linux-x86-64-native
$ cd ../..
$ ls
$ ./magnum-jumbo/run/john ../contest/hashes_by_format/lm.john 
guesses: 163  time: 0:00:00:01 0.00% (3)  c/s: 5205M  trying: 0744679 - 0744049
Warning: passwords printed above might be partial
Use the "--show" option to display all of the cracked passwords reliably
Session aborted
$ ./magnum-jumbo/run/john -status
fopen: john.rec: No such file or directory
$ ./magnum-jumbo/run/john -status=magnum-jumbo/run/john
guesses: 163  time: 0:00:00:02 0.00% (3)  c/s: 2602M
$ ./magnum-jumbo/run/john
John the Ripper password cracker, ver: 1.7.9-jumbo-6+unstable [linux-x86-64-native]
$ ls ./magnum-jumbo/run/john.rec
$ cd ./magnum-jumbo/src/
$ make install
make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.
