[linux-lvm] Max Physical Volumes set too high

When running the command:
vgcreate -s 4096k -p 256 -l 255 /dev/vg00 /dev/cciss/c0d0p3
Received the error:
Number of volumes may not exceed 255
From my understanding there is not a limitation on the number of
physical volumes in LVM2. Why would I receive this error if there is no
Max limit on the number of physical volumes.
LVM version: 2.00.15 (2004-04-19)
Library version: 1.00.19-ioctl (2004-07-03)
Driver version: 4.3.0
Has this been corrected in a later version or do I need to specify the
MAX PHYSICAL VOLUMES as 0?
I understand that I can just adjust to 255 or less, but this is a script
that recreates a volume group based on previous settings. The original
VG had MAX PHYSICAL VOLUMES set to 256, yet I am unable to recreate it
with the same values.
