Mongodump "failed to parse private key"

Hello,
In MongoDB 4.2.14, mongodump is not able to decrypt the private key of a PEM file despite the fact that --sslPEMKeyPassword is provided with the correct password.

It displays below error:
2021-05-25T07:25:50.601+0000 Failed: can’t create session: error configuring the connector: error configuring client, can’t load client certificate: tls: failed to parse private key

This seems same issue as reported in Jira issue TOOLS-2755
https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/TOOLS-2755?jql=project%20%3D%20TOOLS%20AND%20component%20%3D%20mongodump%20AND%20text%20~%20"\"failed%20to%20parse%20private%20key\""

So I updated this Jira issue, providing certificates and mongod.conf permitting to easily reproduce it.

Does anybody faced same issue and found a correct workaround ?

Regards

Jira issue TOOLS-2755 was closed, so I created TOOLS-2878.

Also I found a workaround:
I have rebuilt the Docker image of MongoDB 4.2.14 with the “MongoDB Database Tools” mongodb-database-tools-ubuntu2004-x86_64-100.3.1.deb downloaded from https://www.mongodb.com/try/download/database-tools.
I confirm that mongodump 100.3.1 doesn’t have the issue.
