This bug is confirmed in F7 (as stated before).

Confirmed on F8 as well.

Mounting the volume with shell commands works fine:

# cryptsetup luksOpen -r /dev/dvd myvol
# mount -r /dev/mapper/myvol /mnt

After doing some more tests, I discovered this:

USB memsticks work, but only if they carry a partition table. That is, assuming
/dev/sda is your USB sticks device, if /dev/sda1 is your LUKS volume everything
works fine. The LUKS volume is detected, it asks for a passwork, it unlocks it
and mounts it under /media/<volname>.

But if you LUKS format /dev/sda (the disk as a whole) it doesn't. The symptoms
are the same as for CD/DVDs (which of course don't carry a partition table). It
asks for a password, correctly opens the device, but stops before mounting it,
with no errors.

I hope it helps somehow. I don't know where to look for further info.
