OK.  Originally, you said you did this:

1) fsck -v -p -f the filesystem
2) mount the filesystem
3) Try to copy a file
4) filesystem will be mounted RO on error  (see below)
5) fsck again, journal will be recovered, no other errors
6) start at 1)

Was this with with a read-only snapshot always being in existence
through all of these five steps?  When was the RO snapshot created?

If a RO snapshot has to be there in order for this to happen, then
this is almost certainly a device-mapper regression.  (dm-devel folks,
this is a problem which apparently occurred when the user went from
v3.1.5 to v3.2, so this looks likes 3.2 regression.)
