Subject: JtR jumbo-12 with nul bytes in wordlists


I have attached a patch which allows JtR w/jumbo 12 to work on
wordlists containing nul bytes again. This has to be applied after

I didn't do a ton of testing, but it worked in my simple test case of
"one\n\0\ntwo\n" .. 

A nul byte should be effectively equal to a line terminator.. With
jumbo 12 it terminates the entire wordlist. JtR 1.7.6 w/o jumbo 12 is
not affected and does the right thing.

Check out your wordlists and see if you might have been skipping some
