Hi,

I am also bitten by the above ecryptfs messages slowly filling my /var/log and
have a followup question to the cleanup workaround presented by Dustin in comment #57
of this bug:

Is there any way to determine (=decrypt) which files have been messed up,
so I know if there is anything important, which I have to grab from the backup
before that expires and gets overwritten ? In other words:

 $ umount.ecryptfs_private
 $ cd $HOME/.Private
 $ mount.ecryptfs_private
 $ find . -size 0c | xargs ecryptfs-decrypt-filename {}
                                      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Yours,
Steffen
