Bug#516922: cryptmount: couldn't find libgcrypt cipher "blowfish"

Package: cryptmount,libgcrypt11
Severity: important

Last libgcrypt11 seems to have added a problem regarding cryptmount. Since I
do not know which package is to blame I am filing a shared bug report
against both so both maintainers know about this problem. Since libgcrypt11
was updated in the last days, seems that the incompatibility has been
introduced there.

I do not know if other algorithms work, so I am setting this bug report
only as important, although severity is higher for me.

cryptmount:  3.1.1-1
libgcrypt11: 1.4.4-2

$ cryptmount dummy
couldn't find libgcrypt cipher "blowfish"
failed to extract cipher key

Going back to testing libgcrypt11 in my sid box seems to make things work

cryptmount:  3.1.1-1
libgcrypt11: 1.4.1-2

$ cryptmount dummy
Enter password for target "dummy":

Rebuilding cryptmount against last libgcrypt11 seems to not help.
