So I'd guess you might be a 'victim' of Debian home-brew udev rules for lvm2,
which were unfortunately not consulted with upstream (nor udev, nor lvm).

If you really need 'quick' solution - try to build CVS version
(shouldn't be really hard) - second thing to try my be more recent Debian
lvm2  build which has merged most of udev rules from upstream (though there
are still some deviation that might be source of troubles).

If you want to get some support for your version of OS and lvm2, you may try
to open Ubuntu bugzilla.

It's always best to have reproducer on different machine so you may check your
solution you want to deploy on production machine.

Note - upstream code contains test suite (subdir test) which you may try to
run in your environment to see whether all tests passes.
