Are you sure it was lvm3 instead of say screwed up disk I/O?

My gripe with lvm3 is more philosophical -- it provides a silly service,
namely allowing me to combine the failure modes of all of my disks and
if any one of them fails, my FS is toast.  I just put a separate lmv3 on
each disk (in passive-aggressive fashion) and ignore that lvm is there.

(And yes, I did learn the hard way too when a 600Gig filesystem spanning
3 Seagate 200G disks developed an intermittent controller card on one of
the disks.)

I did quite a bit of head scratching figuring that one out too.

I guess my philosophy is the other way around.  If I'm going to trip
over a bug, I'd really prefer for it to be something some other person
has already entered into bugzilla.  It pays to be a sheep -- in the
center of the herd. ;-)
