Package: john
Version: 1.6-33
Severity: minor

The john manpage says:

        "Once John finds a password, it will be printed to
        the terminal and saved into a file called
        ~/john.pot."

and

        "While cracking, you can press any key for status,
        or Ctrl+C to abort  the  session,  saving  point
        information  to  a  file  ( ~/restore by default)."

However, a trial run of john demonstrates  that  it  creates
./john.pot and ./restore (i.e. CWD not $HOME).

I was writing a quick patch to the manpage  when  I  noticed
that it seems the upstream documents  also  refer  to  these
filenames and others similar, so it will have to  be  a  bit
more extensive.

This was true some versions ago.
I don't know when, I don't know how, it has been fixed in the meanwhile, and
1.7.2-3 (currently in testing/unstable, going for lenny release) doesn't
present this bug anymore. Now it saves everything under ~/.john/.

I've updated the manpage, it will be present in 1.7.2-4, which will be released
somewhen after the Lenny release.

Kindly,
David
