I use lvm2 (stable version) on a suse linux system (with patched 2.4er 
kernel). The metadata format is lvm2. I tried to extend an existing logical 
volume which worked. However I received a warning message calling lvextend:

WARNING: dev_open(/etc/lvm/metadata/data1) called while suspended

data1 is the volumegroup name to which the LV belongs that I extended using 

My question is simply if this warning is something serious or if one can 
safely ignore it. Actually I cannot classify this message since I don't have 
an idea of what it means.
