You can probably get around this by executing
/usr/sbin/lvm help | cat
Yes, I get the output if I pipe stderr.
But 'lvm help' was just a simplified example. Some commands are interactive,
e.g. lvremove, and I also suspect stdin being detached by selinux.

The packages are the same as we get from rhn?
Unfortunately they don't fix this bug.
