I added that parameter, but don't see any different logging to stdout or syslog on restart.  What should I see?

By the way - I'm working my way through your great book.  In case you end up creating another edition, I can send you some thoughts (areas of confusion in some sections) off-list (or on-list).

That should work. Set plutodebug="parsing contorlmore crypt" and restart.
Do you see any reasons why the key is not loaded?
