OK.

I understood as much but I'm on the fence as to whether that behavior is

Right, the latest version uses "cache_dir".  Could change both I suppose.

AFAIK the latest version of lvm should not have those problems.

It doesn't matter for PV names but it does for VG names.  I'll have to
think about it.
