[linux-lvm] aborted pvmove; how to remove locked LV "pvmove0"

I started a pvmove that was interrupted before it was finished. 
lvdisplay reports that the pvmove0 LV is still there.  Looking in 
/etc/lvm/backup/vg0 shows that pvmove0 is locked.  If I try to use 
lvremove pvmove0, it fails stating that it is locked.

Is there a way to unlock a locked LV?  Or is there a way to tell LVM 
that the pvmove operation is no longer needed so it will clean up?

Thank you,
