When plugging my usb key with 3 partitions (vfat, ext2, luks), I have:

corsac at hidalgo: thunar
thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unsupported USB device type.
thunar-volman: Unknown block device type.

And nothing asking for my luks passphrase. If I click on the
cryptocontainer in Thunar sidebar, GVfs asks for the passphrase and
then, on console:

thunar-volman: Unknown block device type.
thunar-volman: Unknown block device type.

(and it mounts fine).
