I've got a 13.2 installation that for some reason some time ago
started waiting a real short time for passwords on the Plymouth
screen (or at least the Plymouth wallpaper) for a password for the
Luks encrypted partition.

I have to hover over the keyboard waiting for that prompt to come up
and type it really quick or it boots without my home partition

I thought it was /etc/crypttab where the delay was set, but this
appears to be ignored. There are a few bug reports but they appear
full of arguing back and forth and nobody has a clue.

Has anyone else seen this, or have a solution?

I have a bugzilla open on something similar:


I actually have two different luks partitions with the same
password, (I never have to enter it twice).

It seems systemd is involved somewhere along the chain and it
does not honor any wait time.

This used to work just fine, it would wait all day but some update
last year caused it to start being real quick.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
