Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.86-1
Severity: normal

Dear Debian folks,

running `sudo aptitude update` and `sudo aptitude safe-upgrade` the
package `lvm2` was updated.

        [UPGRADE] lvm2 2.02.84-3.1 -> 2.02.86-1

During that update the following messages where shown in the terminal

        Setting up lvm2 (2.02.86-1) ...
        Installing new version of config file /etc/lvm/lvm.conf ...
        Setting up LVM Volume GroupsFile descriptor 60 (/var/log/apt/history.log) leaked on vgscan invocation. Parent PID 31291: /bin/sh
          Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
          Found volume group "vol_storage" using metadata type lvm2
        File descriptor 60 (/var/log/apt/history.log) leaked on vgchange invocation. Parent PID 31291: /bin/sh
          8 logical volume(s) in volume group "vol_storage" now active

This message only showed up once after `Setting up lvm2 (2.02.86.-1)`
but I am a bit confused what it has to do with
`/var/log/apt/history.log`. In any way, I think no such leakage should
