Hmm...the shutdown shouldn't matter.  I rarely run vgchange -an on my
systems (I have LVM as root, so there really is no way to do it...)

There's a good chance that your startup script is running either before root
is mounted read/write (in which case the LVM tools can't write to /etc) or
before /proc is mounted (which is less likely because this usually just
makes vgscan really slow, not fail).  Check your init scripts and verify
that root is writable before the S25lvm script runs.
