Not that I'm from Sistina, but one thing you could start out checking is
in lvm_read_all_pv_of_vg(), and print out the PV list at each step of the
way.  It may be possible that some of the PVs are being removed from the
list, even though they are not supposed to.  The first list, returned
from lvm_read_all_pv(), should be all of the PVs on your system.

Cheers, Andreas
