Well, I am a little concerned because this is precisely my setup, 
however I have never had any problems. 
I have used it in two configurations: 

ext4 on top of dm-crypt (LUKS) on SSD

ext4 inside lvm on top of dm-crypt (LUKS) on SSD

Both have always worked perfectly for me, over a number of months at least.
I frequently manipulate large files such as ISO images, and often use rsync
to backup the whole filesystem, without trouble.
