CTR mode doesn't work with segment sizes other than AES_BLOCK_LEN. As it is a stream cipher, it should work with any sized input, and as a stream cipher shouldn't accumulate any input data between calls -- it should always be able to act upon an arbitrary size input and immediately produce output.

Updated crypto tests to test different segment sizes, ran updated crypto tests (with and without this change) to verify it works.
