OK. This is a bug in LVM2 that is fixed in the re1213.0 tree, bug 142977.
lvm2-2.00.31-1.0.RHEL4.i386.rpm should fix this problem. I'm checking to see
when/where this update will be pushed to partners.
Unfortunately you won't be able to just take an updated RPM and work around the
bug. It turns out that the RPM is in the boot image itself, so you will have to
wait for the pre-rc-2 build.
pre-rc-2 was made available on monday
