Well, I don't think is the version. I've just upgrade to 2.00.29 before
writing to the list and with the version I had before it happened the

After doing the pvcreate /dev/hda1 /dev/hda4 /dev/hdb1, pvscan --partial
-vvv   lists me all the devices y /dev and at the end says:

  PV /dev/hda1         lvm2 [7,96 GB]
  PV /dev/hda4         lvm2 [15,48 GB]
  PV /dev/hdb1         lvm2 [3,00 GB]
  Total: 3 [26,44 GB] / in use: 0 [0   ] / in no VG: 3 [26,44 GB]

After doing the vgcreate /dev/vg1 /dev/hda1 /dev/hda4 /dev/hdb1,
vgscan --partial -vvv   lists me all the devices y /dev and at the end
says: No volume groups found

The device /dev/vg1 is not created although vgcreate says Volume group
"vg1" successfully created.
