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.
