It's probably ok.  With one of the good versions above, run 'vgs -vvvv'
and check that the offsets look good.  Then run a pointless command to
write the metadata with -vvvv and check that the vg writes are happening
correctly.  "vgchange -vvvv --addtag foo <vgname>" will write a new
version of the metadata and won't have any effect on LVs.
