Decrypt error message?

Hi folks, I have just discovered a bug in Livecode where the SSL Library
does not return a normal error message"  like SSL: bad decrypt


it returns unreadable binary garbage...... when in fact, the key and salt
were wrong and the error message should have been "bad decrypt"

I don't know how to trigger it. but i know for a fact that the key and salt
were wrong.

i build a quick workaround for when this occurs.

but its weird and a little worrisome... has anyone else had inconsistent
error messages with the ssl library?
