Whilst looking at #502625 I discovered info relevant to this bug.

On my desktop (which was installed mid 2005, from what looks like Sarge 
media [install log shows kernel 2.6.8-2-386]), the dm_* modules aren't 
loaded automatically.  (/etc/init.d/lvm2 loads dm_mod, nothing loads 
dm_mirror, dm_log or dm_snapshot).

In a VirtualBox vm installed as Etch, upgraded to Lenny dm_mod, dm_mirror, 
dm_log, dm_snapshot are all loaded even before lvm2 is installed.

It's not clear to me what's loading the dm_* modules, but something is.

Thanks for your work in Debian.
Andrew V.
