No, I was really moving 4 out of that box. I just got confused writing
my mail as there were 3 other disks involved and I was shuffling
them around and using some of them temporarily to reach the setup
I wanted. But I am off topic here .. ;)

It has not been a LVM nor a software problem. One of the power 
connectors was broken, so one disk did not have power. Maybe it 
is possible to have a more expressive error message?

Something like "VG <name> consists of 4 PVs, only finding 3".

Anyway, it was my fault, thanks for your thoughts about it!
