Bug Description

Creating a new, blank VM using Virtual Box:

After selecting use entire disk with LVM encryption and entering matching passwords, and clicking Install Now, I get a dialog box:

An unsafe swap space has been detected.

This is a fatal error since sensitive data could be written out to disk unencrypted. This would allow someone with access to the disk to recover parts of the encryption key or passphrase.

Please disable the swap space (e.g. by running swapoff) or configure an encrypted swap space and then run setup of encrypted volumes again. This program will now abort.
