Actually, I don't need segment information, so I can omit --segment. The
command that gives me what I can use is

lvs testvg --separator : --noheadings --all -o +devices

The "-a" or "--all" option is the key. Thanks a lot for this! Now that I
know what to look for, I find it in lvs --help. But not in the manpages.
Guess where I looked :-(
