[Bug 84821] Re: "attempt to access beyond end of device" when creating LVM snapshot

I tried to put a newer kernel on the machine to test but had a bit of a
problem with it, and as it's a production machine, couldn't really do
much more there.

However, I've built another machine to test, and can report on a clean
Dapper install (2.6.15) the problem occurs (with both xfs and ext3
filesystems), and when upgraded to Feisty (2.6.19) it doesn't.

lvm2: 2.02.06-2ubuntu8
dmsetup/libdevmapper1.0.2: 1.02.08-1ubuntu5

I'm trying to boot into 2.6.15 to see if it's the problem, but an update
to udev means update-initramfs won't run and I can't boot the old
kernel.  Trying to find a way around that now..
