Problem with Document.Encrypt

I have a problem when I try to set a password for generated document.
If I set the password on an existing document, everything is OK; but when I create and empty document, and the add pages from existing ones, the call to Encrypt does not set any protection.

I’ve reproduced a very small example which clearly shows the problem. In short,

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using Aspose.Pdf;
using AsposeWrapper;

namespace PasswordProtect
  class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
      //(new License()).SetLicense("...");
      // this way password is set
      // this way password is NOT set

    private static void OpenAndSave()
      var pdf = new Document(@"path\to\file.pdf");

      pdf.Encrypt("password", "", Permissions.PrintDocument | 
                  Permissions.PrintingQuality, CryptoAlgorithm.RC4x128);


    // Open a new file, append pages from an existing file, and
    // set user password for the new file
    private static void AppendAndSave()
      var pdfFrom = new Document(@"path\to\file.pdf");
      var pdfTo = new Document();

      pdfTo.Pages.Add(pdfFrom.Pages) ;
      pdfTo.Encrypt("password", "", Permissions.PrintDocument | 
        Permissions.PrintingQuality, CryptoAlgorithm.RC4x128);


The initial file itself is not encrypted.
This simple code gives the same result with any 7.x Aspose.pdf.dll.
Am I missing something? or is this a bug?
