Happy new year all,

I am new to the mailing list and a new user of Linux LVM although i have
been using similar technologies for years on Solaris and AIX.

I have some strange behaviour i am encountering on a newly installed

$> lvm version  
  LVM version:     2.00.08 (2003-11-14)
  Library version: 1.00.17-ioctl (2004-04-19)
  Driver version:  4.3.0

The machine is newly installed with Gentoo linux 2004.3, latest version.
I installed according to

and seems to work fine. The RAID-1 partitions work perfectly but the LVM
volumes behave weird.

When i reboot the machine using `shutdown -r' the volumes do not come
online because during boot the vgscan fails with a segfault. I have to
manually do a vgscan and reboot again, then things work ok. Same things
happen when i reboot now: vgscan segfaults, manual vgscan, reboot --> all

What could be the problem?
