I have cryptsetup 1.6.1 installed on Ubuntu 14.04, i went and installed 
the uswsusp package for hibernation, and i am getting the warning below 
when update-initramfs is running:

cryptsetup: WARNING: found more than one resume device candidate:

I found some other discussions/bugs about this but the authors indicate 
that the two candidates are the same.  But in my case, the 101... uuid 
doesn't exist, and the uuid for ubuntu-swap is f32...  The config file 
/etc/uswsusp.conf has the correct resume device defined (the f32... uuid 
for ubuntu-swap).

I wonder where cryptsetup is finding that 101... uuid from?  Is there an 
old config somewhere that i can update/remove that old uuid from?
