For some reason, I'm not getting this behavior anymore with 
lvm2/device-mapper 2.02.82-1.

I inserted the 'udevadm settle' line into rc.sysinit on the 26th as you 
suggested (which fixed the issue). On the 27th, rc.sysinit was 
overwritten by new initscripts without me noticing. The bug hasn't 
resurfaced since then though - maybe some other update fixed it?

I know this isn't very helpful :/ I'll post here in case it appears again.
