 From the Linux version and the mention of the snaptab, you must be 
using something from SnapAppliance.  Have you tried talking to customer 
support?  Snap uses my chained snapshot patch, which isn't part of the 
LVM1 cvs tree -- that's why the following snapshots can't be deleted, 
there's a snapshot depending on them.  For documentation, I'd also 
check SnapAppliance.

I can tell you that if you reboot the snapshots will almost certainly 
be deletable.  You should still talk to customer support, as they'll 
probably want your logs to find out what went wrong.
