I had a similar problem.  There seems to be a problem with vgscan erasing the 
conf sometimes. I tried hgetting an answer on this list, but maybe we can 
push it together. Are your disks Maxtor ? 
This is what I did to recover : 
1. Installed backups of vgconf-files (vgcfgbackup/recover seems broken too) 
2. Ran vgchange -a y  
3. Disabled vgscan alltogether, as it wrecked everything always.

Keep us posted :-)
