Subject: "minimum length forced to 8" for wpapsk ?


I'm trying to use john (v1.8.0) to test wpa security. I want it to 
generate 10-character passwords, so I've added this to `john.conf`:

File = $JOHN/alnum.chr
MinLen = 10
MaxLen = 10
CharCount = 62

However, when I run `john --format=wpapsk --session=mysession 
--incremental=Test data`, it prints:

     Note: minimum length forced to 8

and still starts with 8-character passwords. What am I missing?
