Thank you for your reply, I did this.  PVids are unique now, but vgscan
still does not find and activate the volume group.

Do you have something else I could try?

I think of trying to restore the metadata on all PVs using vgcfgrestore
since I have a few copies of vg_stuff.conf in /etc/lvmconf.  Would this
be a stupid idea?

TIA
