Description of problem: system-config-lvm-1.0.13-1.0 starts when called but
immediately crashes. Happens whether called by root or regular user su'ed to
root. Gives same error regardless of user. Note that selinux is deactivated
and uninstalled on my FC5 i686 machine. Reproduce it everytime, either from KDE
menu as root or from terminal window as regular user at command line. Here is
the error report:

Steps to Reproduce:
FWIW, I reinstalled selinux-policy and selinux-policy-targeted (2.2.38-1.fc5)
but got the same result with system-config-lvm. Note that libselinux-1.30-1.fc5
and libselinux-python-1.30-1.fc5 remain installed here because dependencies
require them. I mention these selinux-related items because I only uninstalled
them today. Several weeks ago (the last time I used it) the logical volume
manager worked fine.
Please retest with s-c-lvm 1.0.21.
Works for me.
