Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.44-3
Severity: normal

When my machine boots, I get this:
File descriptor 3 (pipe:[9430]) leaked on lvmdiskscan invocation. Parent PID 3608: bash

After it has booted, whenever I give an lv... command, I always get
something like that:

mordor:/home/gpall# lvdisplay

10427: bash

Could that be fixed?

Other than that, everything seemt to work just fine...
