Bug#525579: fails with misleading error if it cannot write backup

Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.44-3
Severity: minor

If /etc happens to be read-only, almost every operation yields an
"error 5". This is misleading, and the error message should be
better. Also, I should be able to specify an alternate/more
appropriate location for the backup...
