Subject: -min-len / -max-len oddities with accented letters


I'm pretty sure it's known problem: I'm currently using JohnTheRipper-bleeding-jumbo, compiled the 7th of december, on FreeBSD 10.x, and I'm trying to crack passwords with those options:

./john --fork=4 --session=MYSESS --rules=ALL --wordlist=mots_francais_plus_plus_alpha.dic -min-len=15 -max-len=16 PWDDUMP.20151205

I've just cracked a 14 char length password, with an accented letter.
Earlier, playing with -min-len=13 -max-len=14 I've cracked a 12 char password, with an accented letter too.

Is that to be expected?
