[Leap 15 / btrfs, fresh install about a month old, running off a
NVMe m.2 2280, on a Dell T3620 that was previously booting (and
still multiboots) 42.3 and some others off a rotating drive]

After an aborted boot and a reboot I got the following messages in
the reboot's journal:

dellT3620 systemd-tty-ask-password-agent[866]: Invalid password
file /run/systemd/ask-password/ask.Kilegy

dellT3620 systemd-tty-ask-password-agent[866]: Failed to show
password: Bad message

These journal messages are gone after another subsequent reboot but
that's scary words. Who/what is 'Kilegy' (there's no such file,
now)? What exactly is/was this all about?

Are you using disk encryption?

No hardware encryption. OS 15 (btrfs, on the NVMe) is not software
encrypted. /home (xfs, also on the NVMe) and a data partition (ext4,
on a rotating drive) are both LUKS encrypted. Other drives / partitions
on this machine, not belonging to this OS and not in fstab, are also
LUKS. (all LUKS, no LUKS2)

Well, it is related to them.

Do you get the prompt to provide the password during boot properly?
Can you boot successfully, or the message is the only problem?

Cheers / Saludos,
