Garbage at the end of file (wodCrypt)

Hi all,

I'm evaluating the Crypt component for my company. We currently
have a piece of software (which is old, we don't have any source
etc etc --don't you just love these situations ?) that
produces a file.

This file is Blowfish-encrypted, and we have the key.

I have tried the wodCrypt component to decrypt it. It works, BUT
at the end of file, I get:

ScrStart1=156999
ScrLength1=&#136;<t~¯ãBý

The very last line should be:

ScrLength1=458

Please note that the file is about 2KB, and everything else is
decrypted OK. The problem is just the last line.

For the test, I used the Delphi sample, right out of the
installation. I have made only one modification: In Button2Click instead of

inblob.text := memo2.text;

I have:

inblob.FromFile('c:myEncryptedFile.txt');

Maybe this has anything to do with EOF ? Is there a workaround ?

Thanks for your time,
