Right, showing an unexpected password dialog at boot with no prompt is
a serious bug.  It's the bug in dracut I think we need to fix.

If he had asked for his root partition to be encrypted he would have
expected that's the password he needed to enter before his computer
booted, so there would have been no problem.

It's only when it's something the user doesn't expect, or when there
is the possibility of multiple questions that it's a problem.
