Ha, that's interesting.

your trace indicates that the postinst script is caught in an endless
loop. It seems that you have a line in your /etc/crypttab that reads
like this:

luks,retry=1,cipher=aes-lrw-benbi # ab Kernel 2.6.20 (gutsy, feisty):

IOW: a line that contains a comment. This is not supported by the
postinst script, please insert a newline before the hashmark, or remove
that comment.

Cryptsetup doesn't support comments in lines not starting with an #.
