[linux-lvm] How to upgrade old LVM version.

I'm currently running LVM 0.9.1_beta6 on Debian 2.2 with kernel
2.2.19 and have been trying
for some time to upgrade to something more recent.
Whenever I try this I find that vgscan from any newer version of LVM
error messages) - I'm forced to reboot. The only evidence I can find is
if I run pvscan.
This reports "different structure size".
I currently have all my filesystem including root running on LVM on top
of software RAID so
it's a fairly delicate business mucking about with this. I'm looking
for a way to fix the problem
other than decanting everything to tape and starting from scratch again.
I do have a separate bootable disc with 2.4 kernel and LVM 1.0 which I
can use as a stepping
stone but so far this too hangs as soon as vgscan is run.
Any advice would be appreciated.
