I saw the same on SXCE b93 and thought perhaps I needed a snapshot so I
made one and tried to use that, which failed. So I gave up, destroyed
the snapshot and figured I'd settle for it being a copy except this time
the clone did work as a zfs snapshot. I haven't had time to look closer
into why it worked.
