[linux-lvm] Can no longer mount lvm striped volume

Things are getting better.  I found 2 of the
3 lv's that were missing.  I am trying to find the last

All of the vg's and lv's were created under lvm 1.0.2.
I am now using 1.1-rc2.

If I type either:

   vgdisplay -v sdd_vol4


   vgdisplay -v sdd2_vol12

I get the same results, both for sdd2_vol12.
That vg does not yet have a lv.  I get the same
results from different nodes (storage is fiber attached).

Is there a maximum number of vg's that are supported?
Is there a maximum length that a vg name can be?
When I first configured the new disks I had some problems
where trying to run vgdisplay on the volumes named 'sdd_vol1?' 
I would only get the results for sdd_vol1.  Is there an
8 character max built in?
