Well, I don't know, but anything in  /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/
supercedes initramfs.conf*; in addition, 'resume' appears to be a 'stale' file
from a previous version of initramfs-tools that is now "caduc." I got
rid of it, added 'RESUME=none' to initramsfs.conf (documented) and reran
update-initramfs and the "Tired of waiting..." problem disappeared.

I'm unsure how this works. The UUID of the encrypted swap partition is
randomized apparently (changes at every boot); this was not a problem
before (or I was simply unaware of it), but now it is (because I see no
alternative but to comment out the swap entry in /etc/fstab).
