[linux-lvm] getting pe_start right

While trying to convert my mdadm raid5 array from metadata format 0.9 to
1.0, I forgot to specify the version and it defaulted to 1.2, which
damaged the lvm metadata. After correcting mdadm to 1.0, I decided to
try to recreate the LVM after managing to locate the volume descriptions
in the metadata after manually dumping it.
The problem I now have is that pvcreate will not use the same pe_start
as before. It was 384 and it is now 3072. I tried using --metadatasize
192k --dataalignmentsize 0 and it did not help. What gives?
