Thanks for reporting this problem.

I was not able to reproduce this crash using system-config-lvm 1.1.16, on
Fedora 15.  Perhaps you can provide details on the remote server and
system-config-lvm version you are using?

It would be very helpful if you could follow the instructions at [1] to use
gdb to get a backtrace for the X server when it crashes.
