Thanks for your answer. Some googling revealed that this is known trouble caused (or co-caused) by kjournald, and renicing kjournald from -5 to 0 "solves" the problem. Don't ask me why. I'm using the cryptmount package to access the disk. Is there something inherently better with pmount, LUKS, and cryptsetup? Thanks, D.
