[linux-lvm] lvchange not being able to change read/write permission !!!



Hi all, 

	Is this a bug ? When I do an lvchange to change the read/write
permission and then do the lvdisplay the changes are not reflected,
whereas the file in /etc/lvm/backup/testvg shows the permission changed
to read only. Other changes are reflected. ( I have checked with the
read ahead sectors )

Does this mean there is some inconsistency in the various metadata.
Where does lvdisplay  and its family read the information from ?? Apart
from the disk and the files in /etc/lvm/backup or /etc/lvm/archive, is
there any other place where the metadata information is stored.

I have reproduced the operations performed and also the content of
/etc/lvm/backup/testvg.

Thanks in advance,
Sharad.
