I'm running feisty up to date and have no such problems. Are you sure
you didn't foobar your encrypted file? Did you try "sudo cryptsetup
luksDump /dev/sda11" to check? If everything is ok, try booting up the
feisty CD, then add cryptsetup to the live session, then try opening
your encrypted file from the live session .. just to prove that the file
still works. If it does, try reinstalling cryptsetup on your feisty
install. I don't know what else to suggest, except it's working fine here.
