I got lucky and figured this out.  The wiki mentions when converting that
if a single growable disk doesn't boot to do a full preallocated disk (for
the vmdk).  My disk was booting so I didn't think this was an issue but I
think its what was causing my problems.  I didn't convert it using the
vmware tools though to get it to a full preallocated disk, instead I ran
it through qemu-img and converted it to a raw disk and then dd'd it into
my LVM volumes.  The errors seem to have gone away now.  Hope this helps
somebody else!
