Hi Robert,

I just ran all test cases of Cryptography-v5.3-rww.118.mcz in a fresh 5.3 
image on 64-bit linux using the stock VM (no Cryptography plugins), and 
all the tests are green.
ByteArray class >> #fromHexString: and methods sent by it were last 
modified in 2010, and they do not accept non-hexadecimal digits in the 
input string.
