Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image-generic

I have a problem with cryptsetup since kernel update to

First I have to describe my setup:
I have a completely encrypted filesystem with cryptsetup. And there is a script wich mounts my usb key and reads the passphrase for the / partition from a file on the usb key.

Since the upgrade to 2.6.24-14-generic I have the problem that the
script cannot mount the usb key so cryptsetup fails and I can't start
the system. But I can see that the script is executed. So during
creation of the initial ramdisk everything seems to work fine. With
2.6.24-12-generic I have no problems. Script is working correctly.

Do you have any idea what could be the problem? Is it possible that the
/dev/sd* changed with this update? Or is perhaps a module renamed which
I need to access the usb key?

If you need any more information, pls ask. I kindly attach all the
config files, scripts which are used in this setup.
