Two things to try:
1) Set up filters in lvm.conf to make sure LVM only looks at /dev/md and
   not the underlying devices directly.

2) Use a bigger Physical Extent size with vgcreate.

If that still doesn't work, run with the verbose flags (-vvv) or set the
debug log-to-file options in lvm.conf to get more diagnostic information.
