Occasionaly I get _LOTS_ of this kind of errors from a LVM
snapshot i have mounted.

dmesg gives these 2 interesting lines:
--------------------------------------
EXT3-fs error (device lvm(58,4)): ext3_readdir: bad entry in directory
#1327138: rec_len % 4 != 0 - offset=0, inode=1922062006, rec_len=43729,
name_len=218
EXT3-fs error (device lvm(58,4)): ext3_readdir: bad entry in directory
#1376515: rec_len % 4 != 0 - offset=0, inode=2932214113, rec_len=4999,
name_len=53


which fits perfectly well with the snapshot:
--------------------------------------------
brw-rw----    1 root     disk      58,   4 Oct 27 07:00
week_snapshot_opt_1035698402

The strange part is that some files works, and some doesnt ??
Is this a snapshot error, a filesystem error, or combinations ?
I run EXT3 on all my filesystems, and i only see the problem on
snapshots. They are read only though, so it could be that EXT3
doesnt like read-only. Has anyone experienced anything like this?
