No prompt for encryption password at boot until ctrl+alt+backspace

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I recently switched from Mint to Fedora and I have to say I love it. My only gripe is that when the computer boots, I have to press ctrl+alt+backspace in order for the encryption password prompt to appear. Otherwise, it hangs on loading initial ramdisk indefinitely. I have no idea why this works at all, I didn't think the X server was loaded this early and I didn't think this key combination was used for anything but killing X. In addition, waiting until the screen has adjusted to the proper resolution and pressing ctrl+alt+backspace yields a verbose boot. Pressing this key combination before (HowTos)
