It does sound a lot like an "odd" lvm toolset (or perhaps library) that's
interfering. It's worth checking whicg vgchange (etc) command is being run (ie
is there one in /usr/local or /usr/sbin that's earlier in the PATH than the
"real" one. Also do "ldd" in the library to see which library is being picked
up.
