    See Bug #870326: ecryptfs_writepage: Error

    I can confirm the same. I recently experienced a flood of thousands of such ecryptfs dmesg errors, so many that I was alerted to the issue by errors regarding zero disk space remaining.

    After reading up on Bug #372014, I resolved (hopefully) the issue by deleting all ecryptfs-encrypted files of zero length:

    Code:
    find $HOME/.Private/ -size 0c -exec ls '{}' \; | wc -l
    will output the number of such files. I then proceeded to remove the listed files.

    EDIT: I am still running natty 11.04, fully updated. I do use the oneiric kernel, however.

    Code:
    find $HOME/.Private/ -size 0c -exec ls '{}' \; | wc -l

    I ran the above and got 4, but no list of the files
