    vinboy,

    I have this too. I don't see this as a problem though, I see it as a a
    security thing. Noone should be able to leave it sitting at the password
    request forever, and be able to connect something up trying to hack
    themself in.
    It would be good to know where this is configured though. I'll check around
    and see if I can find it.

    Niclas Ekstedt,

    From what I can tell there are two interesting options to cryptsetup that
    might be what we're looking for, --iter-time and --timout.

    I would recommend playing with these in a lab first, as I don't want you to
    end u not being able to access your partitions correctly.

    Refer to the man page for cryptsetup for more info.
