Neither am I, but it's coming from somewhere in the IO path...

It's reproducable on lots of different kernels, apparently - 3.8,
3.4.33, CentOS 6.3, debian sid/wheezy and Fedora 18 were mentioned
specifically by the OP - so it doesn't look like a recent
regression or constrained to a specific kernel.

The version I used to reproduce on a 3.8.0 kernel was:

$ pvmove --version
  LVM version:     2.02.95(2) (2012-03-06)
  Library version: 1.02.74 (2012-03-06)
  Driver version:  4.23.1
