      Description

        The PKCS11 provider document makes a statement about the delayed
        selection mechanism which is inconsistent with the implementation.
        It claims that for Cipher, KeyAgreement, Mac, etc.:

            If an application calls the initialization method multiple times
            (each time with a different key, for example), the proper provider
            for the given key is selected each time. In other words, a
            different provider may be selected for each initialization call.
