Am I right in thinking that salt is automatically added to the RSA encryption? That is, encrypting the same thing again and again should not create the same encrypted data each time? I think this is the case, but I'd like to be sure it's not my poor programming!

Thanks, Matthew

Yes, you are right. Both PKCS#1 v1.5 and PKCS#1/OAEP encryption methods use randomly generated salt value.
