using a different version of the tools and/or kernel code won't change the
limit on your LV since that limit gets set at VG creation.  The default
limit seems to have changed with 1.0.6 but that will only affect newly
created VGs (which will use a larger physicial extent size by default).  I
think this is well documented in the FAQ and/or mailing list archives[1].

[1] google for "lvm lv size limit" and the first hit would have explained
it...  teach a man how to fish ;-)
