(Sorry about the delay ... I've been travelling.)
Yes, I see. Thank you very much for finding that error. I understand
now how to create the key hashes for all combinations of MD5/SHA and
DES/AEX AES AES for agent/usm.conf.
Hint to OTP maintainers: that'd be a good bugfix to add to the
next maintenance release. :-)

No, it is not.
