[linux-lvm] lvcreate --snapshot ---> file descriptor 7 left open?

Hey there,

currently I am testing a small backup script (ksh) which is supposed to create snapshots
of my MySQL database file systems using the Linux LVM2 snapshot feature. 

Here is the command I am using:
"/usr/sbin/lvcreate -L 10240M --snapshot -p r -n mysqlsnap /dev/datavg/mysqllv"

It works fine so far ($? = 0), however I am seeing some kind of strange messages:
File descriptor 7 left open
  Logical volume "mysqlsnap" created

A month ago J├╝rgen reported similar messages using "lvdisplay":
Alasdair then pointed out that this message is (only?) a warning message:

Here 's my question:
Do I have to be worried about the consistency of my snapshots in any way
because of this message?

Operating system  : RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 for IA32 + latest patches. 
Kernel version    : 2.6.9-11.ELsmp

lvm> version
  LVM version     : 2.01.08 (2005-03-22)
  Library version : 1.01.01 (2005-03-29)
  Driver version  : 4.4.0

Kind regards
Lutz Reinegger
