I vaguely recall the occasion which caused me to file this bug report
but I can't recall any of the specifics about how I got into this state.
(Which points to something of a shortcoming in my bug report, sorry).

I do notice that I sent the report from a work machine so it might be
something to do with Xen, but it is equally likely to be something on
one of our server machines or I just happened to send it from work in my
lunch hour.

I can't think of a reason why I would have deliberately switched from
the LV name to a UUID in fstab, but that's not to say I didn't. It's
also possible that this was just a transient issue in the installer or
grub or some other component which is gone now.

Sorry for not being much help here.
