similar to this:

openssl enc -e -in file -out encryptfile -aes-256-gcm

openssl enc -d -in encryptfile -out file -aes-256-gcm

can someone explain why I get the following output

enter aes-256-gcm decryption password:
bad decrypt

but the file is correctly decrypted

I'm using latest openssl rpm package from CentOS 6
