Hmmm.  Does this help:

[navindra at vinata navindra]# lvm1-pvdisplay /dev/hda6
--- Physical volume ---
PV Name               /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part6
VG Name               bytepool
PV Size               10 GB [20964762 secs] / NOT usable 32.19 MB [LVM: 129 KB]
PV#                   1
PV Status             available
Allocatable           yes (but full)
Cur LV                5
PE Size (KByte)       32768
Total PE              318
Free PE               0
Allocated PE          318
PV UUID               none

As you see, it claims there is no UUID.
