Some more info.  

If I use: lvcreate -L1G -s -n snap /dev/lv/root /dev/hdg1
the snapshoot is corrupt

if I use: lvcreate -L1G -s -n snap /dev/lv/root /dev/hde1
the snapshoot works

The difference being that /dev/lv/root is on /dev/hde1.  hdg1 is basicly
empty right now.  Suspect there is still race in this process.
