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 :-)
