[linux-lvm] lvdisplay ignoring filter in /etc/lvm.conf?

On futher-further testing..it appears that a "vgscan -vvvvvvvvvvvvvv" does not update the lvm cache like it used too before RHEL 5.5.

vgdisplay apparently uses the device list in the /etc/lvm/cache/.cache file.

If you make a change to your filter line in the lvm.conf, it won't take affect until you manually "rm /etc/lvm/cache/.cache", then run vgscan, and then the "Found duplicate PV" messages will be gone.
