> File descriptor 51 (/var/lib/debtags/vocabulary.idx) leaked on vgchange

This is the standard and pointless message that lvm outputs whenever one
of its commands are invoked by a process that just didn't happen to close
file descriptors (such as bash when asked to redirect file descriptors):
lvm(2) states with no justification for its behaviour:
On invocation, lvm requires that only the standard file descriptors
stdin, stdout and stderr are available. If others are found, they get
closed and messages are issued warning about the leak.
The message is pointless as other programs such as daemons can be
routinely be observered with strace to silently close all file descriptors
without complaining, but as you say, the error message is also
rather scary and counterproductive.
BTW: Why has this been reassigned to libept0 ?
