It sounds a lot like the issue I've encountered. If so, the problem is
that /etc/init.d/lvm doesn't attempt to modprobe dm-snapshot before
activating volumes. A volume that has a snapshot associated cannot be
activated if snapshot support is not loaded; thus, activating the volume
To fix, add 'modprobe dm-snapshot >/dev/null 2>&1' below the other
modprobe lines in /etc/init.d/lvm . It'd be great to have this in the
shipping package (maybe even in Sarge - it's only a trivial change, but
with the freeze and all...).
Perhaps this has something to do with the debconf key mentioned below.
dpkg-reconfigure has nothing to say about it though.
