There is very low number of lvm developer and very high number of generated 
different error states from udev ;)

So far we have not though about this one - so we will need to think whether
we can figure out something for these sorts of errors...

IMHO it looks like  /dev/__  symlink in your case occasionally points to 
different device - and this is confusing lvm2
(and resent version even more as they is way more open/close sequences beyond 
the point I'd like to see...)

Filters can fix a loooot of trouble we are otherwise having hard times to 
figure out the right sequence....

So whenever you can - set your filter as tight as possible - this will speedup 
execution of any lvm2 command and reduce risk of accessing  unwanted devices...
