The only thing I can think is that the SCSI device is not being
opened/initialised properly by LVM.  This certainly wasn't happening
before ~July when I put the open/close_pv() functions in.  But should
be working now.  Puzzled.  You really are using the new tools and not
old binaries in strange places ?  I've been caught a couple of times
by this ...
