Default F16 does not enable LUKS-encrypted swap device at boot

After upgrading to Fedora 16 (x86_64) my swap logical volume is no
longer enabled. I had made no changes to this since F15, where swap
worked fine.

My swap device is actually a LUKS-encrypted logical volume. The
encryption key is random (/dev/urandom).

Does anybody know how the swap devices are enabled at boot now, and/or
why it may not be enabled for me? Below is more information about my
setup; not that /proc/swaps show no active swap devices.
