Yes, I did have the same thought, but left it out of my post, which was 
already in danger of sounding accusatory.

I got as far as implementing the structures from RFC 6520 in 
BouncyCastle, in late June of last year, but never got around to 
actually implementing the protocol. I certainly would have tested 
against openssl (as usual), but would I have "asked the right questions"?
