I have noticed a couple more symptoms I thought I would forward.

1. The drive light stays illuminated when the machine is up, whether the
lv is mounted or not. Could this also be an indication of what killed
the first drive?

2. Doing normal actions on the volume group, in this case, vg01, causes
a segmentation fault. This includes vgchange, doing an fdisk on the
drive or anything else.

Anyone have any pointers?
