Thanks, I see.

I'm using keys as defined in:
https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git?a=blob_plain;hb=HEAD;f=doc/spec/tor-spec.txt

That is:

"For a public-key cipher, we use RSA with 1024-bit keys and a fixed
exponent of 65537.  We use OAEP-MGF1 padding, with SHA-1 as its digest
function.  We leave the optional "Label" parameter unset. (For OAEP
padding, see ftp://ftp.rsasecurity.com/pub/pkcs/pkcs-1/pkcs-1v2-1.pdf)"

I only have the public keys to work with. Not a surprise. :-)

I will see if I can find more info on this.

Cheers
/Jocke
