I'd prefer a bug report at: http://trac2.assembla.com/Nikto_2/newticket as  
this email gets a lot of spam. (In my past I posted to full disclosure  
 from this address - woe is me!) This means I can track it better.

Yep; looks like a bug to fix - where it doesn't cope with "cut-down"  
version of the version strings. If you could raise a bug I'll deal with
