Bug Description

We are using use ecryptfs-utils userspace functions on SLES 11 SP4. The package we use is ecryptfs-utils-61-1.33.1.x86_64.rpm

A call to ecryptfs_add_passphrase_key_to_keyring results in following message in var/log/messages

Dec 1 03:13:19 SLES11SP2-132-215 Libgcrypt warning: missing initialization - please fix the application

We need to know if this message implies anything really bad, and also how could we avoid getting it ?

I think, is it eCryptfs-utils you use too old? The latest version is 111 and you could try that one instead.

BTW, from what I know, rpm package is customized for Redhat not the original one.
