Somebody oughta write a program that figures exactly what
version of LVM, Kernel, and LVM tools are installed, and
writes the bug report for you.  Debian has something like
this called "bug".  You run "bug mutt", and it figures out
all the versions of mutt, the kernel (uname -a), and the
libraries that mutt depends on.  You just give it the 
program, a description of the bug, and the severity, and
it fills in the bug report and e-mails it for you.  Very
nice when you find a bug, but you're in the middle of
something and don't have the time to research and figure
everything out yourself.  It'll even attach the core file
if you want.
