Illegal Key Size using AES/CBC/PKCS5Padding and Spongycastle on Android Studio

Attempting 256 bit AES crypto on Android Studio. Developed a unit test to run using Android Studio 3.0.1. JDK does have the upgraded local and USExport policy files. Same code is used for 128 bit AES/CBC/PKCS5Padding, and works without error. Key generation, encrypt and decrypt all work fine with 128 bit key strength. Code for 256 is identical other than the length of the key. Also note, same code, using Bouncycastle, works under Netbeans with same JDK with policy files. Something about the Android/Studio platform and/or spongycastle. Baffled.
