The "preupgrade" package seems to have corrupted my encrypted drive

I wanted to upgrade my Fedora 9 laptop to Fedora 10. I executed this:
yum -y install preupgrade
It downloaded 1.1G of RPMs and asked me to reboot.

Now when I boot, I am prompted for my pass phrase to unencrypt my /home partition on SDA4, but it can't be mounted. Same when I boot from a CD.

Is there anything I can do to fix my encrypted drive? Is there a chance I'm just missing a driver?

Has anyone else upgraded with preupgrade and an encrypted drive?

Thank you, Marko. That bug report is a start.

But that seems to be a different thing. It says, preupgrade doesn't work for systems with /var/cache/yum on an encrypted partition. But only my /home partition is encrypted, not /var.
