Hello Heinz,

Here are a few defects.
There are inconsistency in view between 
lvdisplay and lvdisplay with -c option
Here is an example:

lvdisplay /dev/vg_demo/striped 

--- Logical volume ---
LV Name                /dev/vg_demo/striped
VG Name                vg_demo
LV Write Access        read/write
LV Status              available
LV #                   3
# open                 0
LV Size                1 GB
Current LE             32
Allocated LE           32
Stripes                2
Stripe size (KByte)    4
Allocation             next free
Read ahead sectors     1024
Block device           58:2

lvdisplay -c /dev/vg_demo/striped 

1. As you can see the option -c does not show information about stripes
at all.
2. -c option also does not show information on snapshot volumes

3. Also in vgdisplay, pvdisplay and lvdisplay with -c option some of
the sizes shown in KBytes and some of the sizes in the number of sectors

We are (here at Novell) relying heavily on -c option. 
Do you have any plans to fix these defects ? 
If yes when are you planing to have a patch or next release ?
Thanks a lot.
