Did you modified udev device-mapper rules? If not, perhaps you should report
it to your distro bugzilla if it doesn't work with default package.

(The "waiting to zero" is in fact libdevmapper internal problem, cryptsetup is
just an user here.)
Usually it is caused byt removal of mandatory device-mapper udev rules.

Cipher or dmcrypt configuration is perhaps not related to this.
