  LV vgfoo/lvfoo in use: not removing

Hmmmm.  Looks to me like it shouldn't be complaining.  I
don't know if this would affect anything at the lv layer,
but the only unusual thing here is that my pv happens to be
built on top of device mapper (dm-crypt).  Everything has
been working fine except for lv and vg deactivation.
