Strange behaviour with volumes and snapshots

Today I’ve been creating a few snapshots from existing volumes and then making new volumes from those snapshots. I also created some empty volumes. I’m observing some very inconsistent behavior. The following things have occurred a number of times:

  1. A newly created empty volume gets mounted to a directory named something like /mnt/.do-first-mount-ANrvB8Vrs and it’s size is 333MB instead of it being mounted to the place I requested with a size of 1 TB. If I detach the volume and re-attach it it goes to the right place, but I still have to manually resize the file system in order for it to use the full 1 TB

  2. The volume restored from a snapshot gets mounted to /mnt/.do-first-mount-ANrvB8Vrs

  3. The volume restored from a snapshot has the correct file system size, but is empty.

Has anyone else observed anything like this?
