Yes there are other volumes using ext3.
/boot			    20M	ext3
/			   512M	ext3
/usr			   512M	ext3
/var			   512M	ext3
swap			   768M
/tmp			   128M	reiserfs  LVM
/cache			   512M	reiserfs  LVM
/chroot			   512M	ext3	LVM
/usr/src			  4096Mreiserfs	LVM
/data			   ~30G	xfs	LVM

the tests are done on /chroot for ext3,
/usr/src for resierfs & /data for xfs.

I can skip the ext3 snapshot creation part - each test is done on its own 
logical volume; however, in the dark dim past any of these could have had 
other filesystems on them.
Does this sound sensible?
1)	Run tests without doing the ext3 snapshot creation, then
2)	dd the entire lv that is giving problems and try again?

Thanks for your time & effort.
