This is not yet resolved.  I'm still waiting for Peter Rajnoha to follow 
up after I provided him the information he requested.  He said he might 
be able to look at it more closely later this week. In the mean time, I 
work around this issue by activating the VG with --partial.  I can 
access my data, but I can't make any LVM config changes.
