comment Automatically mounting Truecrypt volumes at user login time
Agreed - doing this, somebody knowing the Linux password of a particular account would be able to read the startup script in which the password is stored, in other words the volume would in effect be protected only with the Linux login password, not with AES. I could live with that. Now that I think about it the main weakness with my original suggestion is the -p option on the truecrypt commandline which makes the password visible to ps. That IS very bad, I admit.

Seems like /etc/.profile is a good place, as it is executed with root privileges, thanks.

Nobody for this question? Does anybody know if I can configure an upstart script at user login time, with root privileges when executed?

Thanks for your reply. He should not. The mount operation should be completely transparent for the user.
