wrt comment #4 this is expected - the last block is the one that is padded (to
block size) so its normal that the first part (complete, unpadded) block is ok

wrt comment #5 (and like I already told you and Daniel separately) this is
likely the best[1] solution for *any* provider. Since Mono and MS uses a
different algorithm it means depending on the base class (protected methods) to
encrypt/decrypt is a bad idea[2] in any case.

[1] sadly incompatible with earlier versions (not that earlier version works
with mono ;-)

[2] because you can't mix MS and Mono servers using the same DB, nor can you
upgrade to Mono (or downgrade to MS ;-) without resetting every members
