[linux-lvm] Why can't I extend a LV after many times extends?



LVM version:     2.00.08 (2003-11-14)
Library version: 1.00.07-ioctl (2003-11-21)
Driver version:  4.0.0

I am using linux kernel 2.6.3

For making my data can balance on all of my three scsi disk, I use such
methods to create my LV:
  lvcreate -l 32 -n test vg /dev/sda1
  lvextend -l +32 /dev/vg/test /dev/sdb1
  lvextend -l +32 /dev/vg/test /dev/sdc1
  lvextend -l +32 /dev/vg/test /dev/sda1
  ......

  (I use a shell script to do these)

But When I extend a Logic Volumn to 26.5G, it saids:
....
  Logical volume boards successfully resized
  Extending logical volume boards to 26.75 GB
  VG amd64 metadata writing failed
  Extending logical volume boards to 26.75 GB

  (lvextend using sdb1 and sdc1 will fail, but lvextend using sda1 will
  sucess)

It is strange I have three scsi disk which are the same.
