Subject: Need help with hashes from isocode plaintext

I'm having some difficulty grasping how to make JtR work for hashes from unicode plaintext.  I'm sure I'm missing something very basic.

Working from this @PastbinDorks twitter feed:  For example, 005f3942106f3bc5a392dcde686d87f0 -- my attempts do not derive the plain 'geländerxx', presumably the plain for that hash.

I've read but it was not helpful.  For one, using base64 to encode and then decode does not result in mangled text as that article demonstrated - on my system, anyway.  Manually converting the 'ä' (LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH DIAERESIS) to "&#228;" within my wordlist doesn't work, either.

I'm using the Gentoo JtR build (1.7.9-r5); I've also tried using unstable-jumbo cloned from github. My installed locales: en_US.UTF-8 and en_US (ISO-8859-1). My default locale is UTF-8. 



hash file (first field articially generated for convenience:

$ john --session=h --wordlist=w --format=raw-md5 h
Loaded 1 password hash (Raw MD5 [128/128 SSE2 intrinsics 8x])
guesses: 0  time: 0:00:00:00 DONE (Sun Nov  4 10:37:25 2012)  c/s: 200  trying: geländerxx - gel&#228;nderxx

Any suggestions?
