SubjectLVM snapshotting broken?
Hi Heinz,

it looks like the LVM snapshotting in 2.4 doesn't allow you
to create snapshots from anything else than the _first_ LV
in the VG...

I have run both the following command lines (after lvremoving
snap1, of course) and both of them give as a result that the
LV /dev/test_vg/swap ends up being the snapshotted filesystem ;(

# lvcreate -s -L100 -nsnap1 /dev/test_vg/test
# lvcreate -s -L100 -nsnap1 /dev/test_vg/swap

# cat /proc/lvm
LVM driver version 0.8final (15/02/2000)

<snip VG/PV info>

LVs: [AWDL ] swap 122880 /30 1x open
[AWDL ] test 204800 /50 1x open
[ARDL ] snap1 122880 /30 close

It looks like somewhere in either the utilities or the
kernel, the argument of which LV to snapshot gets mangled...
Oh, I'm using version 0.8final of the LVM utities.
