Not so easy, as it happens during the initramfs state.

When I enter a wrong key, the error message (which seems to be just the
result of a "modprobe padlock-something", no other output happening)
appears before I can retry to enter the password again. This made me
think that it’s a cryptsetup issue.

I also observed:
$ strings /sbin/cryptsetup |grep -i padlock

No padlock does not appear anywhere in /etc.

Oh, sorry for forgetting to mention that: It occurred after the upgrade
to the kernel version 2.6.24.
