Hi kevin,
Can we close this bug, seems internal snapshot is not supported.


Comment 5 Kevin Wolf 2012-07-30 07:41:17 UTC
Let's leave it open with low priority.

Comment 7 Kevin Wolf 2013-04-17 14:13:33 UTC
I tried to reproduce this, but I can neither on current RHEL 6, nor in the -185
build. Is this really 100% reproducible for you?

Comment 8 Ademar Reis 2013-05-17 15:39:07 UTC
Internal snapshot is not supported and Kevin couldn't reproduce it. So I'm closing it.
