I am running a similar configuration: 
Kernel 2.4.18-rc4 
    + LVM 1.0.3
    + linux-2.4.18-VFS-lock.patch
    + sched-O1-2.4.18-pre8-K3.patch
I use ext3, and the LVM 1.0.3-tools + LVM-1.0.3-pmove-patch 

Snapshots work.

I upgrade to 2.4.19-pre6, must merge the VFS-lock.patch by hand
and drop the sched-O1-* patch; and use the LVM 1.1rc1-Tools:

Snapshots get generated, but first some (depending on the
order of generation!), later all of them are unreadable (even
a simple cat fails complaining about that), so mount fails.

I decide this might be due to a bad merge on my side or a
kernel problem, so I downgrade to:

Kernel 2.4.18-rc4 
    + LVM 1.1rc1 
    + linux-2.4.18-VFS-lock.patch
    + sched-O1-2.4.18-pre8-K3.patch
LVM 1.1rc1-Tools.

Snapshots still unreadable.

I downgrade the Kernel to LVM 1.0.3:

Kernel 2.4.18-rc4 
    + LVM 1.0.3
    + linux-2.4.18-VFS-lock.patch
    + sched-O1-2.4.18-pre8-K3.patch
but still with LVM 1.1rc1-Tool

Snapshots still show the same problems as before.

Downgrading to LVM 1.0.3-tools on the running system:
everything works again.
