TrueCrypt Volume creation is not working under snow leopard

If you are using encrypted files and try to create an encrypted file container or volume you will get the error message " test failed at truecrypt::encryption test:testxts:831 " under snow leopard. there isn't a fix or good work around yet and there are reported problems with mounting as well. I hope this soon changes.

Why use encryption? Well if files are stored in such a container and somebody gets your notebook it won't be possible to open the files without knowing the password.

Update:
There's no need to actually use True Crypt for a volume creation - mac os has built in support for that! open the disk utility for that :
