[linux-lvm] "broken" snapshot volume -- how to remove?

Once more -- running "lvremove" on a snapshot volume causes a kernel BUG
(see attached file).

- vgck reports no corruption of lvm meta-data
- vgscan (without -D option) crashes as well (though not in the kernel)

What other information can I provide for someone to make sense of this?

I *have* to bring the vg into a consistent state and I urgently need to
drop the snapshot volume -- is there any tool to manipulate lvm purely in
userspace that can simply delete the snapshot volume?
