This is going to be a _major_ PITA here.  March to July is a long period.  I could live
with a tolleration mode.   Everything on my system is in LVM (excepting a small recovery
partition).  My largest PV is corrupted...

Hopefully something can be done to make this beta error a little less painfull - Please.

TIA,

Ed Tomlinson
