I have a fresh installation of Lucid with manually modified lvm2 partitions. I have /dev/sda1 as ext2 /boot partition, while /dev/sda5 is a PV for the LVM2. I got the same header checksum error from all lvm2 tools and update-grub.

Doing a "pvscan" revealed that /dev/sda1 is an available PV member of the LVM, when it's only used as a standard partition for /boot. I don't know if that's good or bad, but Mike's solution worked. However I had to do some extra steps on a running system:

  - umount /dev/sda1
  - pvremove /dev/sda1
  - blkid /dev/sda1
and then replace the UUID into /etc/fstab where /dev/sda1 is mounted (/boot)
  - mount /dev/sda1
