Actually I have to partially withdraw that earlier conclusion, today
I did encounter one failure on a system with all logical volumes
making up the system paths on a SSD. The system in question had been 
booting fine with lvm2 2.02.122-2 roughly a dozen of times before and 
I haven't been able to reproduce the failure case again, but it does
strengthen the hunch of a timing related issue.
