This is not good.  This is a system that has been recently rebooted, and
come up clean.  This i sthe very first LVM command I have run by hand
since the boot.

In terms of the other problems I was having, I think I _may_ have gotten
those fixed (i.e., things like `find /` killing the system) by some
friendly souls in the linux-kernel mailing list with a VM patch.  There
seemed to be a bug in largemem systems that was being exercised.

Now, I just rebooted the system with that patch on a fresh kernel: 
Linux Kernel 2.4.19, patched with the VM patch, LVM 1.0.5 and Broadcom
Gigabit Ethernet patches.

I left for dinner, during which time nobody did anything to the
machine.  I came back and decided to try creating a snapshot volume of
/dev/vg00/tmp, and lvcreate segfaulted.  lvscan also segfaults, vgscan
hangs, and vgdisplay and lvdisplay seem to still work.

trying to create a test volume after that (`lvcreate --extents 512
--name testvol vg00`) simply hangs.

So, who do I give what information to so that we can trace down the base
of this problem, and get a fix?  Ask me for whatever you need from the
system, and I'll provide it if I can.

Thanks again in advance,
