[Linux-cluster] clvmd hangs

I had a node crash (actually, lost power) and now when the cluster comes back up none of the PV/VG/Lvs that contain the GFS2 volumes can be found. Pvscan, lvscan, vgscan etc all hang.

# pvscan -vvvv
#lvmcmdline.c:1070         Processing: pvscan -vvvv
#lvmcmdline.c:1073         O_DIRECT will be used
#libdm-config.c:789       Setting global/locking_type to 3
#libdm-config.c:789       Setting global/wait_for_locks to 1
#locking/locking.c:271       Cluster locking selected.

The output is more or less the same from lvscan and vgscan.

The cluster is pretty basic and I was in the midst of configuring fencing when this went down, thus the config has no fence in it.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cluster config_version="5" name="Xanadu">
<clusternode name="xanadunode1" nodeid="1"/>
<clusternode name="xanadunode2" nodeid="2"/>
<cman expected_votes="3"/>
<quorumd label="quorum"/>

Additionally the cluster logs all show similar unending messages such as:

So cman is up and working. It seems that clvmd and the tools it depends on are simply not wanting to play nice. What do I have to do to get those volumes to mount?
