That's not the problem (cryptsetup takes care of both post and pre-setup
of lvm if necessary). The problem is a disagreement between partman-md and
partman-crypto which results in a bogus /etc/fstab on the target fs and
after that everything goes downhill (see #393728 for more details).

Hopefully I'll have time to look into this soon or we'll have to mention
that crypto and md are not compatible in the debian-installer errata.
