[linux-lvm] Scrub errors after extending LVM RAID1 mirror [full email]

Weirdly, I thought I had failed to reproduce this bug, but my auto-scrub
job ran this morning (first Sat of month), and I got:

03:15:15: Starting scrub of rvg/test ...
03:15:15: ... scrub started ...
03:18:36: FAILED:      7926656 mismatches

So I really have no idea what's going on there. I will wade through my bash
history and see if I can see what I did last week and what triggered this..
