Hm, must have missed that one while searching for similar problems.

The "operation not permitted" is happening with a unpatched 2.4.19-pre5
Kernel, and also when the Kernel is patched to lvm-1.1-rc1.

When removing the lines quoted above, it is possible to create another
VG without the "operation not permitted" Problem.

I don't know how to debug this further, so if anyone needs more specific
Information, please tell me.
