The problem is that when you pass non-NULL lv to _percent_run(), it tries 
to verify that the number of segments in that lv is equal to the number of 
targets. And it isn't --- the lv can have more than one segment but there 
is just one "snapshot" target. That's why it fails.

What to do with it? Drop this verification? Or pass NULL as lv there, like 
before?
