Typically, you need to type in the same passhrase twice for "/", once
for grub and once from the initramfs to mount "/" ... are you sure you
typed the right passphrases in at the right times? If you were only
asked for two passphrases and got a guile prompt after the second
passphrase, this would be my *guess* what happened.
