Bug in the code.  Exact error would help.

It _should_ work, but why it doesn't, I don't know.  Can you try running
"vgcfgrestore -v -d -n <vg_name> <path_to_pv>" and send the output
(compressed probably).

If possible, apply the following patch first, so we can be sure that it is
doing the right thing.

Cheers, Andreas
