The bug in the userspace is quite nasty though. Has it been reported and/or
fixed in the recent versions ?

Additionally, would you suggest a way to remove the stale LV ? Ofcourse

but moving a terrabyte is not s.t. I would like to do often.

On the other side, the stale LV is not causing any problems ..
