Subject: RE: JtR v1.9.0 Jumbo 1 bleeding, fatal error with /dev/shm in Windows
 CMD and powershell

I test this issue more.

My further research of this issue concludes the following:
JtR cygwin builds with OpenMPI/MPI enabled during compile time, have the 
"MPI_Init" and "/dev/shm" fatal error when ran outside of cygwin (via 
CMD or powershell).
JtR cygwin builds with OpenMPI/MPI disabled during compile time, seem to 
run without error outside of cygwin.

1. Was this already a known issue?
2. Is this the main reason why OpenMPI support is disabled by default 
during compile time?
3. Does JtR jumbo 1 bleeding code need to change to fix this "MPI_Init" 
issue, or does this issue need to be resolved somewhere else like with 
cygwin or OpenMPI?

Thank you
