THanks! I do have "normal" allocation policy on the VG and all the
LV's inherit this.
But that just deepens the mystery. Why are my first 3 PV's showing
full and the others not?

[root at eustorage ~]# vgs
  VG                      #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize VFree
  euclid_highperf_storage   6   3   0 wz--n- 9.80T 1.22T
[root at eustorage ~]# lvs
  LV         VG                      Attr   LSize   Origin Snap%  Move
Log Copy%  Convert
  LV_export  euclid_highperf_storage -wi-ao 600.00G
  LV_home    euclid_highperf_storage -wi-ao   6.00T
  LV_polhome euclid_highperf_storage -wi-ao   2.00T
