[linux-lvm] Inconsistent naming...?

I created a snapshot volume "with the name corresponding
the volume name-date-time:

ll /dev/Home+Space/
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 8 Jul 10 18:16 Home-2011.07.07-00.00.00 -> ../dm-12
lrwxrwxrwx 1 7 Jul 10 18:16 Home-2011.07.10-09.42.07 -> ../dm-5

Ok and they look that way in 'lvs', but when I mount
them,  'df'' (or mount) shows:

^^                ^^
                      897M  160K  897M   1% 
                      1.0T  468G  557G  46% 

Notice the device name.   notice how the single dashes are now displayed
as two dashes?!?!

What up with that?   Seems like a bug somewhere... -- though it doesn't
**seem** to affect how it work....but it is disturbing...I thought my
volume names had mutated somehow...
