Swap space not enabled at boot in F16

For some reason my swap device is not being enabled (swapon) at boot.
It seems that the new systemd swap.target is not doing its thing as I
would expect.

After booting, I can manually run "systemctl start swap.target" and it
works, with my device then showing up in /proc/swaps.

My swap device is a LUKS-encrypted LVM logical volume, and I don't see
anything wrong with any of its setup or configuration. Nor has
anything changed that I know of since F15.

Since swap.target is a built-in special systemd unit, is there
anything I need to do to make it work at boot?
