Thanks, that worked.

Huh? Where/what is CVS? Is this fix something up2date would grab?
Sorry, I'm fairly new to the Redhat way of doing things.
On a related topic, is there any way to create a snapshot outside of the
volume group containing the original target? I'm short on space in the
original VG and would like the snapshot the use some other space in a
different VG. If not, I'll have to shuffle some disk space around.
