It looks like it is the hda16 partition that accounts for that difference.
It's about 10G. Look at the lvmdiskscan listing in my normal envirnonment:
lvmdiskscan -- /dev/hda14 [ 10.00 GB] Extended LVM partition [0x8E]
lvmdiskscan -- /dev/hda15 [ 10.00 GB] Extended LVM partition [0x8E]
lvmdiskscan -- /dev/hda16 [ 10.06 GB] USED LVM whole disk
Why does the line for hda16 say "USED LVM whole disk" and not "Extended LVM
partition [0x8E]" like the others?
