GELI provider would never detach

Hi, Everybody.

I am trying out the geli partition and everything is just fine,
except that it would never detach. It just freezes and
I have to do "reboot -q" or "reboot -q -n" in order to start over.

The thing seems happening only with large >100G partitions.
256Mb memory stick worked perfectly.

I have recently updated all sources and recompiled the system.
I waited about 4-5 hours for the provider to detach.
I removed GBDE support from the kernel, just in case.

Thank you for any comments about it,
