Massive "PHEW"!

Yeah Gnome is totally not mounting encrypted partitions correctly. I kept incorrectly trying 'cryptsetup create <name> <device>' because it's been a long time since I had to use cryptsetup on the command line. Using 'cryptsetup luksOpen <device> <name>' worked fine.

I can cancel this download of Dapper Drake now...

This is obviously a bug (it made me freak out big time for about 30 minutes) and I want to see it fixed. What information do you need from me?
