ecryptfs problem after update
I just updated my xubuntu-9.10 system to 10.10 (would have gone to 11.04,
but the installer kept crashing). I told the installer to leave my /home
filesystem alone -- and it did -- but now I can't access the encrypted
data in my home directory. I have the unwrapped passphrase from the 9.10
installation but can't find any info on how to use it to access my data.

I have tried using "ecryptfs-mount-private" but it complains "ERROR:
Encrypted private directory is not set up properly" and bails.

Whither now?
