Myself I am a newbie, but might I suggest that you try to remove a few entries? By trial and error, you might get it working. I get AutoYaST repartition an existing drive, but my partitionning scheme is way simpler than yours (/boot, swap, /).

Remove all partition_id, loop_fs and format entries. For your /boot, set a specific size, instead of "auto". Then try it. You might want to remove crypt just to try if this help, even though you require encryption.

Here is mine, which clear the drive completely:

<partitioning config:type="list">
<drive>
<device>/dev/hda</device>
<use>all</use>
<partitions config:type="list">
<partition>
<mount>/boot</mount>
<filesystem config:type="symbol">reiserfs</filesystem>
<size>128mb</size>
</partition>
<partition>
<mount>swap</mount>
<size>auto</size>
</partition>
<partition>
<mount>/</mount>
<filesystem config:type="symbol">reiserfs</filesystem>
<size>max</size>
</partition>
</partitions>
</drive>
</partitioning>

Simple, uh?
