log from boot

I often turn on my laptop and then look away while the boot process starts. I found that many times, when I look back, the system is in text mode with a prompt to enter the root password or ctrl-d to continue.

Upon investigation, the problem is simply that the password prompt for unlocking /home is timing out, and that results in dropping to this prompt.

(I have /home encrypted but not the system partition.)

I suppose the correct behavior is to keep the GUI and to re-prompt, possibly with a button for "enter maintenance mode" appearing.

Alternately, just don't time out.

Attached, boot log from the "failed" boot.

Also try "timeout=0" option in /etc/crypttab
