 Of course doing this doesn't solve any of the issues I mentionned ;-)
 A safer variation would be to change the default SHA1 hash algorithm
 (HashName property) to SHA384 or SHA512. This will produce 48 to 64
 "quality" derived bytes (solving one of the issues you currently have
 in your sample).
+------- Additional Comments From sebastien at ximian.com  2006-10-13 12:37 -------
+I had a look and it won't be easy as this is totally undocumented
+(i.e. means a LOT of hours for something that will remain problematic
+forever). IMO key derivation is too important to depend on something
+I updated monodoc to warn about interoperability problems.
+Closing as WONTFIX.
