 From a Users point of view:
If you run vgscan, and it even mentions something about

a) REBuilding /etc/lvmwhatever
b) it fails for *any* reason,

people, me included, delete /etc/lvm* to start "clean",
and give vgscan the opportunity to start fresh, without
any "corrupted" data.

I dont know how often I nuked the backups, even after i
knew that deleting /etc/lvm* is not a good idea. Its like
a reflex.
