This last commit is still bad, it uses

printf "$PASSPHRASE..." stuff instead of printf "%s" "$PASSPHRASE..." 

So you can program format exploits in shell...;a=blob;f=src/utils/ecryptfs-setup-private;h=7780a4e43983dee18fd5e08318b41bccd57a7298;hb=HEAD

is the current version and looks better.

This script (ecryptfs-setup-private) btw allows passing passphrases on the
commandline too. *sigh*

Ciao, Marcus
