TrueCrypt "wrong password" on OS X

Installed TrueCrypt on OS X and plugged in an USB stick completely entcrypted with Windows XP. Surprisingly the device select dialogue showed not only the device but also two partitions. No matter what was selected TrueCrypt complained about the password.

Tested the stick under Windows again and worked fine. After reboot of the OS X system TrueCrypt worked also as expected. Only the device was shown and after entering the password the device was accessible.

Not sure if a reboot was needed after TrueCrypt installation. It might also be some "remembered" info about the stick that was gone after the last "use" was unsuccessful.
