When troubleshooting cryptomount, I was editing a menu entry from grub itself, I had an entry like thus:

cryptomount -u <uuid>

but it did not like the uuid for whatever reason (possibly another bug). So I deleted '-u 34352kj23.....' and hit tab a couple of times, eventually ended up with:

cryptomount (hd0,msdos3)

which comes back with:

Error: disk (hd0,msdos3) not found

another forum poster suggested I try:

cryptomount hd0,msdos3

which did work. Here is my original forum post on Gentoo:
