2.6.17 also fails.

More info: The failing kernels can deal with multiple pre-created
snapshots but the moment I try to create one it freezes as below. Mounting
another snapshotted volume at the time this is frozen freezes mount.

After reboot the snapshot it froze on making is available to the system
(though the reboot fails on shutdown as it cannot unmount anything).
