cryptsetup (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: cryptsetup

Fresh install.
I've partitioned my HDD :
- 1 primary (/) (intended to be encrypted)
- 1 logical (/home) (intended to be encrypted)
- 1 logical (swap) (intended to be encrypted)
- 1 logical (/media/STORE) (intended to be encrypted)
- 1 logical (/boot)

After installation, the drive (/dev/sda) was unlocked without problem. Same thing for the (/dev/sda1). The system hangs while trying to mount the swap area.
I've tried the installation for 3 times. It doesn't solve the problem.

The problem was corrected when i leave the partitions unencrypted. And i've noticed that grub has no problem mounting its partitions but init doesn't like partitions that are encrypted, notably the swap.
