[xmlsec] Problems load private key

I added pem passwords support for the xmlsec application and checked
it in the Gnome CVS (http://www.aleksey.com/xmlsec/download.html)
After this I can successfully execute following commands:
        >  openssl genrsa -out test.pem -des3
        (enter "test" two times as the pass phrase)
        > ./apps/xmlsec sign --pwd test --privkey test.pem 
I am almost sure that the problem you have is related to the way you create
the encrypted PEM file. Please check that you are not mixing pass phrase and
secret key actually used for DES/RC4 encryption.

With openssl i generate my private key RSA or DSA and encripted with RC4 or 3DES... and if after i would load this key i haven't problems with openssl. Your function have a parameter to indicate the pass phrase of private key, but don't works.This is the problem
