Does anyone know how I can create an encrypted filesystem on a file in
my home directory, non-root?  I'm using the loop-aes system and I can
create everything but I have to chown the file and mount point to
change the owner and group to my user.  But, when I mount the
filesystem the mount point directory is changed back to owner=root and
group=root and I can't create directories and files in the mounted
filesystem since I don't have permission.
