Hi!  That's quite strange, and I don't recall anything that has changed
intentionally that may cause that behaviour.

I understand you may not want to send your private key to us, but could
you perhaps re-create a similar blob using another private key, and see
if you can reproduce the problem, and send that blob to us?

Alternatively, you could gdb the function and single step and let us
know which function fails.
