I think i have found the problem,here is a test to show it:

[root at mtz build]# cryptsetup open --type tcrypt /home/ink/src/truecrypt
Enter passphrase:

[root at mtz build]# cryptsetup status /dev/mapper/tcrypt
/dev/mapper/tcrypt is active.
Device /dev/mapper/tcrypt_1 not found

[root at mtz build]# cryptsetup status tcrypt
/dev/mapper/tcrypt is active.
  type:    TCRYPT
  cipher:  aes-xts-plain64
  keysize: 512 bits
  device:  /dev/loop0
  loop:    /home/ink/src/truecrypt
  offset:  256 sectors
  size:    40448 sectors
  skipped: 256 sectors
  mode:    read/write

As the above two commands show with "status" argument,the command fail when
the given path is full path.

"crypt_init_by_name" shows the same behavior,it fail when the path given is
full path and pass if it is only the name of the mapper.

I have always used full path on the second argument with
