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?
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).
Closing due to inactivity. If you have further information to add to this bug
report, please add and reopen it.
