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.
Just a "funny" note here. I had to replace my keyboard due to "cat
my old keyboard which had a dedicated power switch this one will go to sleep after a
time. So, now I have to remember to hit any key if it has been idle for a time. The
first key stroke only wakes up the keyboard and does not generate an event.
