[linux-lvm] Aftermath of a dead hard disk

I recently had a hard disk die on me that was in my LVM group and so had 
to replace it with a new one. When I added the new hard disk into the 
group, I didn't format it first and so LVM still thinks the new hard 
disk (250GB) is the size of the old one (60GB). I'd like to convince LVM 
of the new size. Anyone know how?

I've tried just formatting the hard disk, but that just causes LVM to 
cry that it can't find the pv on the disk.
