[Splashy-devel] Bug#472495: Acknowledgement (splashy works badly with luks)

Seems like it should be quite easy to fix, in the
"/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local-top/cryptroot" script I add:
elif [ -x /sbin/splashy_update ] && [ ! -z "`pidof splashy`" ] ; then
echo "Ask splashy for password"
PASS=$(/sbin/splashy_update "getpass Enter password for $crypttarget: ")
echo "Got a password"
echo -n "$PASS" | $cryptcreate > /dev/null 2>&1
Problem is it sort-of-half-works.
The "enter password" popup is only displayed if I hit F2 *twice*.
The disk is correctly unlocked, the progress bar starts to move, and
After a couple of minutes splashy times out.
VT1 is showing the "splashy ERROR: Timeout" message.
On VT2 it says that the /dev/ has been populated.
If I hit enter the (text-mode) boot continues!
