I think it's very likely that the combination you describe is not workable.
The crypt translator became an orphan years ago, when the author left a
highly idiosyncratic blob of code and practically no tests behind.  Nobody
has tried to promote it since then, and "at your own risk" has been the
answer for anyone who asks.  If you found it in the source tree and
decided to give it a try, I'm sorry.  Even though it's based in large part
on work I had done for HekaFS, I personally wouldn't trust it to keep my
data correctly let alone securely.
