I tried out the latest version (device-mapper-persistent-data-0.5.5-2)
of thin dump ().
I still get the error message :
"metadata contains errors (run thin_check for details).
perhaps you wanted to run with --repair"
so I assume something is wrong with taking the snap
dmsetup message /dev/mapper/VG-POOL-tpool 0 release_metadata_snap
