Thanks for your reply. I got it to work now.

(The additional RAID layer might make a difference. I dealt with a
similar bug 2 1/2 years ago, where it didn't recurse correctly through
the device mapper layers ; at that time I actually had a system
where encrypted root set up by the installer mostly worked out of the
box, too, and I was using LVM, so that might make the difference. But
it also was lenny and not squeeze, of course.

My system didn't have the /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/cryptroot
file; while trying to figure out why, I realized that the "cryptsetup"
package wasn't installed! After installing it, update-initramfs now
creates an initrd that *does* contain cryptsetup.
I expected that the installer would install cryptsetup automatically
(at least) if the user creates encrypted partitions using its
partitioner. I would say this is a bug of the installer; anyone

Yes it's already been there and accurate.

Is correct, too.

Strip the "re"
So I'm looking forward to report a bug against the installer (actually
several, since it didn't install busybox either).
BTW is there a way to make the boot process cache the pass phrase, so
that when I'm using the same for several partitions it would only ask
once? (Yes, I know that using LVM I could put all of those into the
same volume group on a single encrypted physical volume, but I'd like
to avoid LVM this time in an attempt to avoid potential issues (I'm
suspecting LVM to be a part in some unexplained slowness that I'm
suffering from on the machine where I'm using it).)
