A start job is running for dev-mapper-home


Today I re-installed Arch on my machine, using the same procedure as always. When rebooted, the following message appears:

A start job is running for dev-mapper-home (1s / no limit)
It doesn't prevent me from booting and log in, but it never happened before. I read many people having this problem and also having problems to boot.
I'm using syslinux with dm-crypt. My partition scheme is:

/dev/sda1 for /boot
/dev/sda2 for /dev/mapper/root
/dev/sda3 for /dev/mapper/swap
/dev/sda4 for /dev/mapper/home

What changes from the default install procedure:

# modprobe dm-crypt
# cryptsetup -c twofish-xts-plain64 -y -s 512 --iter-time 3500 luksFormat /dev/sdaX
# cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sdaX group_name
# genfstab -L -p /mnt >> /mnt/etc/fstab


# /etc/fstab: static file system information
# <file system>	<dir>	<type>	<options>	<dump>	<pass>
# /dev/mapper/root UUID=92550d7e-6e23-4d6d-9b4a-a5ed30f36705
/dev/mapper/root    	/         	ext4      	rw,relatime,data=ordered	0 1

# /dev/sda1 UUID=6b1bd500-1890-4045-af80-8cc2b9f3dc24
/dev/sda1           	/boot     	ext4      	rw,relatime,data=ordered	0 2

/dev/mapper/home    	/home     	ext4      	rw,relatime,data=ordered	0 2

# /dev/mapper/swap UUID=e1ac70f1-0e39-4938-a8fa-0f4732d07911
/dev/mapper/swap    	swap      	swap      	defaults  	0 0

tmpfs   /tmp    tmpfs   nodev,nosuid,size=15G     0  0

home         /dev/sda4 none       luks
swap         /dev/sda3 none       luks

LABEL arch
    MENU LABEL Arch Linux
    LINUX ../vmlinuz-linux
    APPEND root=/dev/mapper/root cryptdevice=/dev/sda2:root rw
    INITRD ../initramfs-linux.img

MODULES="dm_mod ext4"
HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block keymap encrypt filesystems keyboard fsck"
Any help is appreciated.
