MediaWiki 1.17.3: $bytes != $buffer

Heh. Patched to MediaWiki 1.17.3 on WikiFur - I start testing and getting a strange notice whenever I try to login. Fortunately I know where to go . . . #mediawiki!

After talking with the developer concerned, it seems I ran into a bug in the new mcrypt code. Good that we found it, but bad in that it'll need another patch of MediaWiki - and because they're about to make another release, there are three versions that need patching (1.17, 1.18, and the 1.19 beta, plus the trunk).

Edit: Found another! Broke email confirmation on 1.17, probably just the display of the expiry time on later versions.
