pyhoca-cli stopped working for me. I expected it to ask me for password,
but instead it raises an exception.

I don't know what happened, because this worked all the time. And I
think I didn't change anything.

The error message is: "ValueError: CTR mode needs counter parameter, not IV"

Used command:

pyhoca-cli --server xxxxxxx -u xxxxxx -R

exact apt versions of my client:
python-paramiko 1.16.0-1
