Just as a followup, with the exact same system BUT using the SuSE lvm tools
(lvm-0.8-70; see rpmfind.net), everything seems to work. (The Mandrake RPM
at rpmfind did *not* work.)

I would be interested in seeing what SuSE has done to the source for the
tools. I'm sure the developers here ought to be as well. :)

Anyway, thanks for all the help. Anyone who is running into similar problems
might consider fetching the RPM I've mentioned above; you'll be glad you
