Yes, that warning exactly means that.
There's an aproach to work around that already but it's not yet implemented :-(

Is probably related to the MD assumption further down in this thread.

As Andreas Dilger pointed out: we need to fix pv_read() and friends in order
to stop dealing with MDs through error codes.
