[Bug 851767] No gui prompt for passphrase for encrypted fs

--- Comment #1 from Alan Prescott <alanprescott@xxxxxxxxxxx> 2013-11-25

This has now got weird.

Having built a basic system on a single HDD using the encrypted LVM option I
have now configured 2 additional HDDs as a RAID1 device holding a second LVM
with 2 LVs both encrypted with the same passphrase (also the same as the
passphrase for the system LVM).

(I had to build the RAID after the initial configuration as when I tried to
build it as part of the installation it threw up errors.)

I am now getting 2 prompts for passwords.
The first prompt is unchanged as a text prompt for the partition containing the
system LVM cr_ata-VBOX_HARDDISK_VB7481dd63-5a3f100d7-part2.
The second prompt appears as a gui after the splash screen appears. The name of
the device it is for runs off the screen but if I press ESC it appears to be
for cr_ata-VBOX_HARDDISK_VB7482dd63-5a3f100d7-part2.

Please note the differences in the names - VB7481 and VB7482. There is nothing
in /dev/disk/by-id referring to

FYI - /etc/crypttab currently looks like this
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-VBOX_HARDDISK_VB7481dd63-5a3f10d7-part2 none none
cr_home /dev/data/home none none
cr_data /dev/data/data none none
