I can't reproduce this here with my hardware (not exactly the same,
had to tweak the actual devs and sizes of pv.01 and pv.02).  Does this
always happen foryou?  

Comment 5 David Rousseau 2004-06-18 11:09:43 UTC
yes it always happen.
it seems to be a problem related to clearpart function.
This function was already bugged in RHEL 2.1 (as "clearpart --drives
sda" didn't only clear sda disk but all disks).
