This is harmless but it does mean that dmeventd-based snapshot
usage monitoring is not currently enabled for this snapshot.

But if you restart dmeventd (kill the process and it'll restart next
time you activate the snapshot) it should work.

I'll have a look at how best to cope with this within lvm2 (either
rpm upgrade triggers or...).  But out of curiosity: had you upgraded
lvm2 (lvm2-libs et al) prior to creating the snapshot and dmeventd was
running prior to the upgrade?
