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.
