Bug reference:      3571
Logged by:          Ken Colson
Email address:      ken(dot)colson(at)sage(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 8.1.9
Operating system:   centOS 64 bit (Linux 2.6.18-8.1.6.el5)
Description:        call to decrypt causes segfault
Details: 

this statement:

select decrypt(''::bytea,'password','bf')

causes the postgresql backend to crash:

kernel: postmaster[3368]: segfault at 000000011f391a83 rip 00002aaab2e6e1a0
rsp 00007fffdadd9be0 error 4

This seems to be a 64bit problem.  The problem was duplicated on 8.2.4 on 64
bit Ubuntu 7.

thanks,
Ken Colson
