As far as I know, I'm using standard lvm.conf (attached).

I'm having the same error (in valgrind) when I run the test app as a regular 
user, so actual LVM config shouldn't have any effect (?):

  /dev/mapper/control: open failed: Permission denied
  Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.

I don't think so, I've got a test app that reliably crashes with normal 
execution while works fine under valgrind:

#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <lvm2cmd.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <assert.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <string.h>

int keep_running = 1;

void
signal_handler(int dummy)
{
    keep_running = 0;
}

int
main(int argc, char **argv)
{
    signal(SIGTERM, signal_handler);
    signal(SIGINT, signal_handler);

    const char dev[] = "string";

    printf("Variable before: \"%s\"\n", dev);

    void *handle = lvm2_init();

    lvm2_exit(handle);

    while (keep_running) {

        int arr_len = (random()%320+1) * 1024;

        char **table = malloc(sizeof(char *) * arr_len);
        assert(table);
        for (size_t i=0; i<arr_len; i++) {
            table[i] = strdup(dev);
            assert(table[i]);
        }

        char *big_alloc = malloc(arr_len * 1024);
        big_alloc[0] = '\0';
        big_alloc[4095] = '\0';
        big_alloc[arr_len * 1024 - 4096] = '\0';

        printf("Some text to output\n");

        char *string = strdup("Other text");

        printf("Variable after: \"%s\"\n", table[arr_len/2]);

        free(string);
        free(big_alloc);

        for (size_t i=0; i<arr_len; i++) {
            free(table[i]);
        }
        free(table);

        //sleep(1);
    }

    return 0;
}
