Well it seems to consist of 2 issues with a kernel booted with a 3.2.0 kernel:

1) - It only seems to trigger with a snapshot of the LV present
   - Just tested if the snapshot being mounted RO did really matter, it doesn't.
   - It can also be triggerd if mounted RW
   - It can also be triggered when the snapshot is not mounted at all (by just copying some files on the filesystem itself)

   So that seems a device mapper issue

2) BUT:
   after the error triggerd by 1:
   - After removing the snapshot with lvremove,
   - umounting the filesystem on the LV
   - fsckíng the filesystem without errors (apart from the journal recovery)
   - rebooting the machine again with 3.2.0 kernel
   - mounting the filesystem on the LV
   - removing the partially copied files
   - trying to copy files from the filesystem on the LV to the same filesystem, without a snapshot of the LV present
   - it fails with the exact same error mounting the filesystem RO.

   then
   - umounting the filesystem on the LV
   - fsckíng the filesystem without errors (apart from the journal recovery)
   - rebooting the machine with a 3.1.5 kernel
   - mounting the filesystem on the LV
   - removing the partially copied files
   - trying to copy files from the filesystem on the LV to the same filesystem, without a snapshot of the LV present
   - no problems files copied ok

   then
   - rebooting into 3.2.0 again
   - mounting the filesystem on the LV
   - removing the completly copied files
   - trying to copy files from the filesystem on the LV to the same filesystem, without a snapshot of the LV present
   - no problems files copied ok


   SO
   - it keeps on failing on 3.2.0, even when the snapshot is gone and the system is rebooted, after 3.1.5 is booted once everything seems to be OK again .... even under 3.2.0
   - that seems more like a filesystem thing ?


I doubled checked and performed all these steps again.
