Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.51-2
Severity: normal

When booting, a debian system installed with the option LUKS encryption +
lvm, just before asking for the LUKS passphrase, it gives warnings about not
finding the volumes. It is not expected behaviour to try to find lvm
volumes, when those volumes are on an encrypted disk, before unlocking it...

Bug reproduction: Install debian selecting the (I don't remember how exactly
is it called) full disk encryption + lvm, and then boot it...
