It happens to me with a single salt, a CPU format, and no wordlist. With a "busier" run like the one you describe, I've seen exactly the same delays in status and ctrl-c, and they're understandable. This issue seems different in kind. > you could also try sending it a SIGUSR1 from another shell. Does that work, > but not pressing a key? If so, we need to investigate. Yes, SIGUSR1 also works.
