i still am unclear how one verifies that swap encryption is working.

i'll dig a bit more ... hints appreciated.

Look:

nimrodel:~ # file -s /dev/hda5
/dev/hda5: Linux/i386 swap file (new style) 1 (4K pages) size 1574361 pages
Label 320_swap

If you do that on your md1 and it is recognized as swap, then it is not encrypted. Instead, you should get that result on /dev/mapper/cr_md1
