I think this is related.

I did set the suid bit on /sbin/mount.ecryptfs_private

After that, "ecryptfs-mount-private" is still broken. It has the appearance of
working. The Private directory is mounted. But in the mounted ~/Private only
the encrypted file names show.

If "modprobe ecryptfs" is run before "ecryptfs-mount-private" then it works

It seems that "ecryptfs-mount-private" is loading the module, but is loading it
too late for it to be usable for decrypting the file names.

After "ecryptfs-mount-private" you can run "ecryptfs-umount-private" followed
by another "ecryptfs-mount-private" to get it mounted properly. Or you can
tell the system to always load the ecryptfs module.

To me, this looks like a bug.
