It seems a mismatch between LVM tools and kernel code versions. That is,
vanilla 2.4.12 includes 0.9.1-beta7(ish) as far as I remember, but at
least Potato includes an ancient version of lvm-tools. The protocol used
by the tools to comunicate with the kernel part has changed several times,
and it seems that it is the problem you are having.

I would download the latest LVM tarball from sistina.com, patch the 
kernel and compile the tools as said on the documentation included. This
way, the mismatch won't happen again, and you'll get LVM code you can rely
on (there were some problems with LVM in the past).
