Package: cryptsetup
Version: 20050111-3
Severity: important

When I use cryptsetup to create an encrypted swapfile, the system
freezes sortly after I start doing anything memory-intensive, such as
running 'darcs pull' to pull changes from one darcs archive to another.

In /etc/crypttab I have:

 cswap /swap /dev/random swap

and in /etc/fstab:

 /dev/mapper/cswap none swap defaults
