   actively secure multiplication protocol. Actively secure comparisons
   take about twice as long as passive secure comparisons.
+* When data was sent and received empty deque objects were left behind

 * Fixed a bug that made 'GF256(1) != GF256(1)' return 'True'.
 * Calling '~GF256(255)' would throw a KeyError, fixed.
