This suggests that your keepass2john is actually a (sym)link to john,
which is wrong.  It should be a separate program - and it is for me.

Can you please show the output of:

ls -l keepass2john
ls -l `which keepass2john`
uname -a

Also, why is it that you avoid the need to type "./" in front of those
commands - do you have "." (the current directory) in your search PATH,
or have you installed those programs on the system globally (and how)?
