Does that mean that its too late to get a bug marked as a blocker? I've just upgraded from F11 using preupgrade and run into https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=530896 which appears to have the impact that anyone not using the graphical boot option can't enter a password for an encrypted partition (eg /home), and then gets stuck in an endless loop being prompted for the password with no way out.

The fix is to boot off a rescue image (and liveusb-creator being broken for x86_64 didn't help - https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator/ticket/626), upgrade to the packages from koji and then rebuild the initrd.

The fix in koji solves this for me, but I suspect that its going to hit a lot of people...

All the people in the bug are complaining about this happening with /home - does someone with / encrypted want to turn off graphical boot and see if it affects that too?
