Nope, everything should work without those.
Looks like a bug, if you can reproduce it.

Could you send the before/after metadata to me directly <mge sistina com>
for further investigation?

Please retrieve it with *before* the problem occurs and another
time *after* it occurs and replace "WHEN" below with before or after

mkdir /tmp/vgda
cd /tmp/vgda
for p in ListOfAllPVsOfTheVG
	dd if=$p of=$(basename $p).vgda bs=1k count=4k
tar cvf - *vgda | bzip2 -c > Catherine_Shen${WHEN}.vgda.tar.bz2
rm *vgda
