Hi, Jonas and Roland,

Thanks for the info.

Take all the time you need, I am absolutely not in a hurry about this. 
I have prepared personal packages with the relevant changes and put them in
a personal repo, so I am using them in the meantime.

That is fine too.

I had a quick look at #659688 and I have a similar feeling. I am no familiar
with cryptsetup besides what I looked for #546610, but as a blind guess to
confirm the above, I'd suggest start looking at "/conf/conf.d/cryptroot"
inside the relevant initrds.

Roland, if you keep somewhere a 2:1.4.1-2 non-working initrd for your old
setup, what are the contents of /conf/conf.d/cryptroot in that initrd? 
Same if you have a 2:1.3.0-3.1 initrd that worked for your old setup.

Just a guess, hope it helps,
