I just did the update of the kernel (1.0.7(28/03/2003)) and tools
(1.0.7-3).

The problem with /proc/lvm/global still appears:

At the moment there are four or five outputs that appears often.
Others are more seldom. Sometimes there are strings in the output,
that (at least I believe so) belong to some userspace programm.

If I do a "lvdisplay" on a snapshot I still get the vfree-error:
| Jun  3 20:58:16 tau kernel: Trying to vfree() nonexistent vm area (00000001401a8000)
| Jun  3 20:58:45 tau last message repeated 5 times

As I'm only logged in remotely I wont try to crash the system now.
