I didn't know that, but I had the opportunity to test it, as the 
/dev/f2/f2 LV went missing again after a reboot. vgmknodes reported 
success, but mount still did not find the node until after a vgchange 
-an / vgchange -ay combo. Weird.

As I mentioned earlier, I did install and run LVM2 on this machine 
before going back to LVM1 (even going back and forth a few times) and I 
suppose it's possible that this changed something in the metadata that 
LVM1 didn't like.
