Hello Frank,

   I think the answer to the key size question is in the keygen code of

   It wants to create a key with bit-length size = to the nearest higher
   of 64.

   3008 is a multiple of 64 (the next higher for 3000).
   3000 is not a multiple of 64.

   Not having Windows on my box, I don't know the answer to the
diskper-f question.

Regards, Newton
