 The IV in the sample code is much too long (256 bits versus 64 bits).
 Strangely this isn't checked by MS implementation.

+* Setting the IV property always throws the exception.
+* Calling the Create[En|De]cryptor methods doesn't throw (for the
+unmanaged ciphers) except for Rijndael.
+I'll look to "relax" the IV length check for Create[En|De]cryptor,
+e.g. if it's longer than required.
