Maybe it was calling vgscan on the messed up VG once I managed to get
it online did it, then.  I didn't call any of the others.

I wonder if it wasn't somehow related to calling vgscan -d and getting
seg faults in the middle of it.  Or, more likely, running vgscan in
the debugger trying to extract more information about what was going

In any case, I hope fervantly never to have the opportunity to find
