Yeah, that's a known missing feature in partman-crypto. It is
not possible to remove encrypted volumes right know.
Tracked in Debian bug #381892.

Hmmm. This certainly *should* work.
Celejar, did you configure a label on the root filesystem, or
remember setting anything unusual?
There are different issues that could lead to such symptoms,
as can be seen in the different bug reports you referenced, but
(AFAICT) none of those should affect current installer builds.
It occurs to me that you might have hit a temporary problem we
had in daily builds after we switched to UUID by default. This
could lead to exactly those symptoms, and has since been fixed.
Any chance you could retry the installation with a current image
and try to reproduce it there? I do realize this may not be
possible, but asking can't hurt. :-)
Otherwise I think we should assume this was caused by the problem
we already fixed - unless someone sees this with a current image.
Either way, thanks for sending in the installation report.
