I am running into the same bug, with the very latest LVM
utilities and kernel 2.4.1.

I have posted a bugreport in the LVM bugzilla, but I haven't
heard anything from the LVM developers. Lets just hope they're
not ignoring us...

LVM 0.8final with the lvm-iop6 tools (as shipped by Conectiva)
seem to be able to use this volume group just fine. The utilities
still complain and I cannot change any configuration things, but
at least I can access my data...

For now, there's nothing we can do until the LVM people acknowledge
and fix our bug. ;(

Virtual memory is like a game you can't win;
However, without VM there's truly nothing to lose...
