Hi Heinz,

great, this is working perfectly! Thank you for the resopnmse! I got my 
information from the manual of cryptsetup. So either I did read/understand 
something false, or the manual is telling wrong. In second case, it should be 
corrected by the maintainer.

If you or someone else can confirm this, I will be pleased to file a bugreport.
