I don't know Delphi or the TPLockBox library, but It would guess that
gAes.GenerateKey() call in the Delphi code would generate a random or
psuedo-random key, rather than a key of 00010203... - the two sides
have to agree upon a single value for the key for a symmetric
algorithm like AES to work properly.
