I got these error messages on the Wolk 4.9s kernel, but not on XFS CVS
kernels (or vanilla linux with XFS patches applied). This is a somewhat
random guess, but you might try to upgrade LVM to 1.0.7, following the LVM
how-to, and see if the problem persists.

I've built a later version of LVM 1 tools, but not had a chance to try them yet (probably won't bother now).

I did see this this today which appears to be the same issue:


From Marcelo Tosatti[1]: "It seems its not safe to create snapshots of journalled fs'es without this patch[2]."

Looks like the patch will show up in mainline in the 2.4.24-pre series.
