      Description

      **Reported in Launchpad by Sergei Glushchenko last update 13-01-2017 09:55:04

      xbcrypt is not setting the IV correctly (and thus is not using an IV)
      This causes the same ciphertext to be generated across different runs (for the
      same message/same key). The IV provides the extra randomness to ensure
      that the same ciphertext is not generated across runs
