As well as trying the above steps, you could also try this command (if
it fails, try also adding the -v option):

$ guestfish -N lvfs zerofree /dev/VG/LV -x
libguestfs: trace: set_pgroup true
libguestfs: trace: set_pgroup = 0
libguestfs: trace: add_drive "test1.img"
libguestfs: trace: add_drive = 0
libguestfs: trace: is_config
libguestfs: trace: is_config = 1
libguestfs: trace: launch
libguestfs: trace: launch = 0
libguestfs: trace: part_disk "/dev/sda" "mbr"
libguestfs: trace: part_disk = 0
libguestfs: trace: pvcreate "/dev/sda1"
libguestfs: trace: pvcreate = 0
libguestfs: trace: vgcreate "VG" "/dev/sda1"
libguestfs: trace: vgcreate = 0
libguestfs: trace: lvcreate "LV" "VG" 1
libguestfs: trace: lvcreate = 0
libguestfs: trace: lvresize_free "/dev/VG/LV" 100
libguestfs: trace: lvresize_free = 0
libguestfs: trace: mkfs "ext2" "/dev/VG/LV"
libguestfs: trace: mkfs = 0
libguestfs: trace: zerofree "/dev/VG/LV"
libguestfs: trace: zerofree = 0
libguestfs: trace: close
libguestfs: trace: internal_autosync
libguestfs: trace: internal_autosync = 0
libguestfs: trace: kill_subprocess
libguestfs: trace: kill_subprocess = 0
$ guestfish version
major: 1
minor: 13
release: 11
extra: -1.fc17
