[suse-security] Can't make losetup mount a crypto file to the loopback device (SuSE 8.2)

I'm trying to mount a file to the loopback device but the losetup command
complains about it.
I'm using the command line:
losetup -e twofish /dev/loop0 /root/testfile
losetup asks for a password but returns:
ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: invalid argument
when one is entered
"losetup -e none" works
I have tried with the standard kernel in SuSE 8.2 but also kernel 2.4.20-13 with both
"loopback device support" and "Twofish encryption for loopback device" compiled
into the kernel.
Thanks in advance
