Binary package hint: dolphin

I have an USB HDD with two partitions. The first one is formated with
FAT32 (sdb1), the second one is encrypted with luks and formated with
ext3 (sdb2). When I attach the disk, Dolphin shows two new devices:

* "nameOfFat32Partition"
* Volume (crypto_LUKS)

I have no problem accessing sdb1. And when I click on the sdb2 icon for
the first time, Dolphin asks for the password. I enter it, the "mount
symbol" appears on the icon, but I cannot access it. Whenever I click on
this icon, Dolphin jumps back to the previous location. No error
message, nothing.

I've noticed that the device has been decrypted correctly:
$ ls -l /dev/mapper
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 252,  2 2009-03-28 14:48 luks_crypto_43d520b7-1a53-4f1b-bf95-3f4db8295946

And I can even mount this device manually:
$ sudo mount /dev/mapper/luks_crypto_43d520b7-1a53-4f1b-bf95-3f4db8295946 /mnt
$ ls /mnt
# The contents of the encrypted partition is shown

Note that this has worked in intrepid.
