Is this reproducible?  What did you previously have installed?

Comment 3 Brian Schwartz 2006-09-07 03:46:37 UTC
Ok - some more info:

I ended up resolving the problem by unplugging a scsi hard drive.  In my setup I
had two attached hard drives - a primary ide & a scsi.  When I unattached the
scsi, files were able to be copied.... and the process worked out.  I don't know
what was on the scsi hd (I bought it used & had not reformatted it).  This was
100% reproducible.

From comment #1, this looks like the lvremove error we saw a lot of in FC5.  Try
rawhide or a Fedora 7 test release.
