I've glanced at the code and the error message here is misleading: I'll
change it.

The error occurred when it was trying to use device-mapper to activate 
the new LV for the first time.  (The LV already exists in the VG metadata 
at this point.)

directly to me and I'll investigate on Monday.

Also send the version numbers: 
  lvcreate --version

following config file section and send /tmp/lvm2.log
