Bug Description

I set up this system with encrypted home directory when I first installed it, quite some months ago now. Today shortly after logging in I am getting the pop-up dialog inviting me to run ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase. It is not at all clear why this is happening now. Is this a phising attempt by nazi hackers trying to get the keys to my precious filesystem secrets?
