The LVM2 tools get confused if they see 2 VGs (1 live, 1 exported) with 
the same name.  It is not trivial to change to tools to cope with this,
so for now, you should avoid getting into this situation.  [If
necessary, use lvm.conf filters to hide the exported PVs while you
rename the live VG to something else.]
