The config has an unencrypted /boot and an encrypted root.  What’s
tested and known-good is a configuration with an encrypted root that
contains /boot, like the one here:

It may be that this configuration is not correctly supported yet.

I’m Cc’ing so we keep track of this issue.

The passphrase-twice issue seems hard to avoid: first GRUB needs to
access the partition, and then the kernel needs to access it.

If anyone is aware of ways to solve this, I’m all ears!

Thanks for your report!
