[Mono-devel-list] Crypto inconsistency between Mono and MS.NET

Hello Jon,

I'm not currently home (as I'm meeting other Mono hackers in Boston) so
I can't easily duplicate the MS runtime results (not that I doubt
them ;-).

What version of the framework did you use ? If the "bug" is (still)
present in 2.0 you can report it in MSDN Product Feedback - note that
a .NET passport is required :(. 

If not I can send it to security people I know at Microsoft (but that
will have to wait until I'm home next week).

However I expect that the "official" answer will be like "results of
calling TransformFinalBlock more than one time is undefined" (i.e.
expect this to change in future versions but not patched in existing

In this case Mono and MS implementation will probably keep their
different behaviors (as I like Mono results much better ;-) unless I (or
someone else) find a case which leads to serious problems.
