I'm testing with the following code instead of the above snippet and it seems to work okay:

        # Ask lvm whether the volume group is active.  This maps to
        # the question "Are there any logical volumes that are active in
        # the specified volume group?".
        lvs --noheadings -o selected  -S lv_active=active,vg_name=${1}|grep -q 1
        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
                ocf_log $loglevel "LVM Volume $1 is not available (stopped)"
                case $(get_vg_mode) in
                1) # exclusive with tagging.
                        # If vg is running, make sure the correct tag is present. Otherwise we
                        # can not guarantee exclusive activation.
                        if ! check_tags; then

The alternative would be to leave the original snippet and add this test if the directory
is present.
