Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.39-3
Severity: grave

My system fails to boot after upgrade to 2.02.39-3. During boot
there is error message from lvm2:
    Locking type 1 initialisation failed
after that system activates swap (successfuly) and tries to check
filesystems (all, except /, are on lvm), but devices do not exist,
so this step fails. Then boot stops with root password prompt.

In the root shell it is possible to run
     /etc/init.d/lvm2 start
It finishes without errors. After exiting the root shell, system
boots normally.
