What kind of passphrase do you use? I had the same "problem" until I
realized, that my passphrase contained a letter, which changed its
"position" on the keyboard when changing layout, during boot it is still
the US-layout. Later it changed to de in my case (no problem to attach
geli device later).

Just a hint.
