I’m not sure about his. I am pretty sure the error messages came _after_
I entered the password the first time, but _before_ cryptsetup exits,
which I noticed when I entered the password wrong the first time, and
the second prompt came after the error messages.
I’ll make sure this observation is correct at the next boot.
Also, fgrepping the contents of my initramdisk for padlock, I only get:
so no script is manually loading these.
