[Mono-list] AES/CFB Stream Cipher Problem

There was a bug filled yesterday, #9201 . You might want to c.c.
yourself to it.
FWIW it's not really AES related. MS implementation(s) of CFB are a bit weird.
RijndaelManaged does it differently than others .NET ciphers (which is
what Mono supports), including AesCryptoServiceProvider (even when the
former uses a 128 bits block size).
AesManaged does not even support CFB (even if it was, once upon a
time, documented as a wrapper on top of RijndaelManaged).
