The problem seems fixed (or at-least worked around): this particular LV/VG is 
on a SCSI-disk. The SCSI-subsystem as well as the SCSI-driver (aic7xxx.o) 
were loadable modules. Today I made a new kernel with these parts no longer 
as a module but in the kernel itself. The result: at boot/initialisation time 
the SCSI-system gets loaded, the SCSI-drives get their initialisation and LVM 
when "vgscan"-ing or "vgchange"-ing sees all the volumes.
Weird as it is: at the moment this doesn't work when the SCSI-stuff is 
compiled as a loadable module. Any suggestions: some change in the init-stuff 
(it's on a 7.2 Mandrake system) or is my current setup the only way to go.
