Hm, I have no Idea why, but if I create a second VG which only consists
of /dev/hda4, there are no problems creating and using a LV in this VG. contains a log of
doing this.

Since this worked, I vgremove'd the newly created VG, and tried
extending my already existing VG with the now unused PV. But .. same
problem as before: 
lvcreate -- ERROR "Operation not permitted" opening logical volume "/dev/pile/test"

A log of this operation is avaliable at

If you need different/more Information, please tell me.

Thanks, Eike!
