Bug Description

Output of the form

    # ecryptfs-recover-private
    INFO: Searching for encrypted private directories (this might take a while)...
    INFO: Found [/home/.ecryptfs/richter/.Private].
    Try to recover this directory? [Y/n]: Y
    INFO: Could not find your wrapped passphrase file.
    INFO: bla

should be

    # ecryptfs-recover-private
    INFO: Searching for encrypted private directories (this might take a while)...
    INFO: Found [/home/.ecryptfs/richter/.Private].
    Try to recover this directory? [Y/n]: Y
    INFO: Could not find your wrapped passphrase file /path/to/file.
    INFO: bla

so it's not necessary to RTFM just to invoke the program.
