Please report what version of LVM2 you're using ('lvm version') and
what architecture and what kernel.

If it's version 2.00.17 or later, please tar/zip /etc/lvm directory
and email it to me (not the list).  (Before that version, I'm not 
interested.)  Also enable debugging-to-log-file for the command that 
fails and send me the complete output (compressed).
  e.g. lvm.conf:  in log section:      

Also (of course) try to reproduce with latest release (2.00.25).
