Bug Description

ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase should prompt for "Password for $USER" and not for "passphrase".

Currently it prompts for "passphrase" which is confusing as the user might think that he has to set a new passphrase.

This is related to:

Also, the dialog 'record your encryption passphrase' should state that ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase should run without sudo.

Yes, it is confusing users. I think we're supposed to change the name or the way to describe it. It's really ambiguous.
