Cannot create encrypted file container

description

I receive the following error message when trying to create a volume on Linux: "device-mapper: reload ioctl on veracrypt1 failed: Invalid argument. Command failed"


Steps to reproduce:
  1. Launch VeraCrypt
  2. Click "Create volume"
  3. Choose file container
  4. Choose standard volume
  5. Select file location in a directory that exists, but the file does not (on a different drive than my OS)
  6. Choose AES and SHA-512
  7. Choose 1 GB
  8. Enter password
  9. Choose Ext4
  10. Choose "I will mount the volume on Linux"
  11. Go bonkers with the mouse, click "Format"
  12. Receive error: "device-mapper: reload ioctl on veracrypt1 failed: Invalid argument. Command failed"
I tried Ext2 with the same results. When I tried to use FAT format, the file volume was created successfully, but when I tried to mount the volume, I got this same error message (after the mounting dialog where you enter the password.

Please let me know if there's any other information (like logs) I can give to help diagnose the issue.

System details:

Arch Linux (kernel 4.5.4)
VeraCrypt 1.17 (installed via the AUR package)
