Subject: wish: clear error message for bad passpharse

When a wrong password is given, the error returned is "Seckey unlock failed: Bad SHA-1 hash" The end user of my application had no idea what this meant, and I wasn't totally sure myself even after reviewing related source code for 15 minutes. Apparently it translates to: "Bad password" Or something similar. Because this is a common case, it would be great to have a clear error message for this. Mark
