[dm-crypt] unable to mount my encrypted drive

All of a sudden, I'm unable to mount my encrypted drive anymore.  I
don't really reboot a lot, so I'm sure a lot has changed since my last
luksOpen including kmod version and cryptsetup being updated from 1.4.3
to 1.6.2.

I typically decrypt with something like this:

zero at ozzie ~ % gpg --batch --decrypt /run/usbstick/slicehdd.gpg 2>
/dev/null | sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 slice -d -

But now all I'm getting is this:

No key available with this passphrase.

here is some additional information:

zero at ozzie ~ % sudo cryptsetup luksDump /dev/sdb1

Please let me know what else is needed for troubleshooting.

Thanks for the support, and the great software.  Been using cryptsetup
for years and loving it.
