Hi, I have the same problem.

I found a temporary workaround:

at the initramfs prompt i type:

cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5 <VG Name>

Then I'm asked for the key. After entering the corrct key I type "exit"
After that I ame asked for key three times again (*) before boot continues into a fully working system with all encrypted partions mounted.

I would however like to fix this as it is annoying and takes several minutes extra to boot every time. I suspect that somewhere there is a missing or wrong configuration which result in the initramfs is not buildt with correct modules.

My problem actually started when upgrading from 10.04 to 11.04. Several upgrades later the problem is still the same. Now running on latest build of 12.04 (LTS).

(*) just pressing enter each time works just fine as I get errors even if i type the correct key. I have no idea why it asks for keys at this stage as the encrypted partitions already are mounted... I think...:)
