[linux-lvm] snapshot file zombies

Hi dear list,

I created a snapshot from my /home to do my usual backup with tar.
Then I got 15 messages of the kind

  tar: lvm-snapshot/vollmer/Mail/inbox/,120:  can not stat, no permission
      (or so it's translated from german to englich by me)

doing a
  find /lvm-snapshot/vollmer/Mail/inbox/ -name ",120"
rsults in

so the file exists, but:
  ls -l   /lvm-snapshot/vollmer/Mail/inbox/,120
results in
  ls: /lvm-snapshot/vollmer/Mail/inbox/,120: Permission denied

get some infos via find:
  find /lvm-snapshot/vollmer/Mail/inbox/ -name ",120" -print "-A@"
results in:
  find: /lvm-snapshot/vollmer/Mail/inbox/,120: Permission denied

The "original file" ~vollmer/Mail/inbox/,120 is ok and readable.

Two weeks ago everything worked fine.

So what's wrong with it? Is my corrupted? (tar --compare seems to complain
only at those files).

I use SuSe 8.1, Logical Volume Manager 1.0.5(mp-v6)

With best regards
