Is this supposed to be a bug report ?

Sorry for bashing the info. I was just answering the questions. LOL!

So far I've no idea about disks/tables in use, system/kernel in use, lvm
version in use....

RHEL 6.4 kernel-2.6.32-358.el6 (also tested with self compiled 3.8)
lvm2-2.02.98-9.el6.x86_64
Disk on external mega raid controller with ext4

How does it perform without snapshot? I have seen a sluggish RAID array when run out of battery.

Is there a reason to use that big chunks?
If the origin is seeing a lot of small dispersed writes using big chunk may multiply it manyfold (actually worst case 128-times: every 4k write generating 512k read from origin and then written to snapshot.)

Running Xen hypervisor but tested without it as well
