reassign 507722 cryptsetup

I believe this issue was worked around/fixed in insserv version
1.12.0-6, already uploaded to unstable.  The fix is to flag the script
asking for passwords as interactive, to make sure they run alone and
have direct access to the boot console.  This can be done two ways,
either by editing /etc/insserv.conf (or a file in
/etc/insserv.conf.d/), or by adding the new LSB-style init.d script
header "X-Interactive: true".  I recommend the latter, to avoid
keeping the list of interactive script in the insserv package.  See
#458224 and #510517 for more information.

Because of this, I reassign this back to the cryptsetup package, and
ask for this header to show up in the init.d scripts needing it, and
ask the bug reporter to use a newer insserv package until the
cryptsetup package is fixed.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
