Hi Michael,

long time since the closing... but somehow the bug was gone several days 
/ weeks (did not watch the time) but it refaced sooner or later. But I 
do not use encrypted external disks so often as well.
I did wait a (not so) little time longer, did upgrade this sid box on a 
regular basis but it did not vanish again. It may not happen always, but 
it does happen too often to ignore it.
The message is still exactly the same:

Error locking luks device: timeout (10s)
waiting for cleartext device to be removed

So... what now? Did the bug reappear on your side too?
