Neither mount nor /proc/mounts claimed the LV to be mounted.

I tried and solved the problem this way:

	rename the LV /dev/vgkira/ftp to /dev/vgkira/ptf
	(necessary lvchange commands not mentioned)

	run e2fsadm on the renamed LV

	rename th LV back

	use the LV as usual

I had no time to look in the sources but I for now I guess e2fsadm fails
if used on a LV with a name that is the beginning of a LV name that
still is in use...

This was the case having LV names ftp and ftp2...
