[linux-lvm] confusing error message from lvm2

I'm confused about an error message I'm seeing from LVM2. The message is:
+ /usr/bin/sudo /sbin/vgs --noheadings --units g --nosuffix --separator
Path /dev/ACTION=_change_ no longer valid for device(252,7)
Path /dev/DEVTYPE=_disk_ no longer valid for device(252,7)
Path /dev/PWD=_/_ no longer valid for device(252,7)
Path /dev/DM_STATE_ACTIVE=_1_ no longer valid for device(252,7)
I'll attach a copy of a script that exhibits the problem consistently
and in only a few seconds. The script presupposes that a volume group
named "v4c" exists. Mine is 8G and is located on a physical disk.
(Well, really a vmware virtual disk, but I doubt that the kernel running
in the virtual machine really cares.)
I'm seeing this on amd64 ubuntu-9.10 updated current as of this posting.
Can anyone explain to me what this means or why I'm getting it?
