Bug Description

In the LinuxMint x64 MATE and Cinnamon Edition 17 live sesion, the ubiquity installer will create unusable luks encrypted swap partitions when you have the format option checked for swap. The fstab and crypttab files are also misconfigured. After the system is installed, making a new luks encrypted swap partition and using the noearly doesn't work and the only way to use luks swap is by manually unlocking it and then activating the swap partion.

The same error appears to occur in both linux mint 17 kde edition as well as the xfce edition. Instructions on how to get any form of swap working would be appreciated short of having to redo the whole installation.
