I had some problems with pvmove some time ago, if the PV to empty
contained parts from several different LVs. But this was due to some 
old bug with a 2.6.12 or 13 kernel. May be it's interesting to have
a look into /etc/lvm/backup/LVM and the associated backups,
to understand whats going on.

To overcome the problem of hanging LVM I shut down my server and
performed a "pvmove --abort" in single user mode while the LVM was
not activated. This restored it to the state before.
