Default FreeBSD 10.1 , install ZFS , encryption , error about pass , USB flash disk

I install FreeBSD 10.1 on Western Digital external HDD with full encryption and ZFS file system, my external HDD connect to my mainboard with USB cable.
Every time I boot my system, it need password and I can use FreeBSD. Everything is good. Yesterday I attach USB flash disk with fat32 file system to another USB port and my system start booting , but when it need pass and I enter password I see error about wrong password and system can not accept my pass. After 4 try, my system need pass for ZFS file pass and it can not accept password. But when I unplug USB flash disk, and reboot system again. today I connect my phone to USB only for charge and start use FreeBSD 10.1 . but again I see error about wrong password . I do not know why when USB flash attach my system say pass is wrong and can not accept . It accept my pass and I can use it. I do no know why I have this problem.

I'd assume that plugging in another usb device changes the device name of the FreeBSD drive...so when it goes to verify your password it cannot find the information because it is looking at the wrong device.

That's just a guess.
