On my machine parted-2.3 was running. Upgrading to parted-3.1 didnt
help, BUT building parted-3.1 for myself with ./configure
--disable-device-mapper works! Then parted does his job without creating
these deices implicitly.

Maybe you know a less radical method? I.e. I could exclude some names in
lvm.conf or something like this? The names of the lvm whould should
create subvolumes are well defined.
