still have no idea why it requires two subsequent attempts after that to decrypt,
instead of the expected one.
This may or may not be your issue. So, just something to consider.
A few years ago I had the same problem not with encrypted partitions but with the
login at the GUI prompt (I was using KDM back then) after boot. I had to remember
to hit backspace a few times otherwise it would tell me the password was wrong. I
have a wireless USB keyboard and it turned out to be the problem with the USB
receiver. Replacing that fixed the issue.
