I just finished running about 40 mins of debench filling 3 1G snapshots.
No stalls/opps.  I am creating the snapshot with

lvcreate -L1G -s -n snap /dev/lv/root /dev/hda3

/dev/lv/root lives on hde.  Does your snapshot live on the same physical
disk as its source disk?

Can you please send me the version of stress.sh you are using?  I'll see
if that triggers anything here.
