Yes there are other volumes using ext3.
/boot                       20M ext3
/                          512M ext3
/usr                       512M ext3
/var                       512M ext3
swap                       768M
/tmp                       128M reiserfs  LVM
/cache                     512M reiserfs  LVM
/chroot                    512M ext3    LVM
/usr/src                          4096Mreiserfs LVM
/data                      ~30G xfs     LVM

the tests are done on /chroot for ext3,
/usr/src for resierfs & /data for xfs.

I can skip the ext3 snapshot creation part - each test is done on its own 
logical volume; however, in the dark dim past any of these could have had 
other filesystems on them.
Does this sound sensible?
1)      Run tests without doing the ext3 snapshot creation, then
2)      dd the entire lv that is giving problems and try again?

Thanks for your time & effort.
