I've tried vgcfgrestore, but this too yields:

	metadata too large for circular buffer

I ran some commands with -vvv.  The output which seems to always 
immediately precede the error is:

	Doubling metadata output buffer to 131072

I also noticed that it appears to be looking at /dev/sdi and /dev/sdj.  
These are two PVs I'd tried to add, but where vgextend also issued the 
"too large..." error.  These two PVs do not appear in 'vgdisplay -v'.

[root backup2 backup]# /usr/sbin/lvremove -d -vvv -f /dev/jetarray004/i2-backup0 2>&1  | egrep 'sd[ij]' 
        Opened /dev/sdi RW O_DIRECT

        Closed /dev/sdj
[root backup2 backup]# 

Is there perhaps some "internal" VG (ie. #orphans_lvm2) that I'd be
able to successfully remove?

Thanks...
