[opensuse] problem with lvcreate and udev

when trying to create a snapshot with

lvcreate -L 700M -s -n snap-usr -p r /dev/system/usr

I get very often the following error:

LV system/snap-usr in use: not deactivating
Couldn't deactivate new snapshot.

After googling, it seems to be a race condition when using udev with lvm.
But I didn't really find a solution, especially for SuSE-10.1.
Does anybody know more about this problem and the right way to solve this?

TIA for any hints!
Cheers, Peter
