I updated to ac21 with the above patch.  I am using the lvm utilities from:

deb ftp://ftp.sistina.com/pub/LVM/0.9/binaries/debian unstable main

Now I can mount the snapshot.  Thanks.

One loose end, is the journal-1777 message below something to worry about?  

oscar# lvcreate -L 50 -s -n snap /dev/lv/root
lvcreate -- rounding up size to physical extent boundary "52 MB"
lvcreate -- WARNING: the snapshot must be disabled if it gets full
lvcreate -- INFO: using default snapshot chunk size of 64 KB for "/dev/lv/snap"
journal-1777: buffer 16 bad state !PREPARED !LOCKED !DIRTY !JDIRTY_WAIT
lvcreate -- doing automatic backup of "lv"
lvcreate -- logical volume "/dev/lv/snap" successfully created

TIA,
Ed Tomlinson
