[linux-lvm] Known Issues with FreeBSD Slices on Disks?

Are there any known Problems when you want to use a Partition from a
Disk also containg a FreeBSD Slice as a PV?
The disk has four Partitions at the Moment:
$ fdisk -l /dev/hda
Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 7297 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 765 6144831 b Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda2 766 2040 10241437+ a5 FreeBSD
/dev/hda3 2041 3315 10241437+ c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda4 3316 7297 31985415 8e Linux LVM
/dev/hda2 is a FreeBSD Partition/Slice and is detected by the Kernel
(which has Support for BSD-Disklabels) as:
hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4
hda2: <bsd: hda5 hda6 hda7 hda8 hda9 hda10 >
System is Debian Unstable with:
ii lvm10 1.1rc1-1 The Logical Volume Manager for Linux
and Kernel 2.4.19-pre5.
When I add this Partiton to a existing VG and then try to lvcreate
another LV from the added Space, I get a
lvcreate -- ERROR "Operation not permitted" opening logical volume
(Attached is a Logfile which shows this in Context, and more Info)
Since this worked without Problems on the other Disks in this System,
and the only difference I can see is the FreeBSD Slice on hda -- might
this be a Problem?
I already tried repartitioning in case there was something wrong -- hda3
and hda4 were a single partition before.
I'm relativly new to LVM, so I don't really know if I'm doing something
