The majer difference has been between a success and a failure has been:

after a non-successful lvcreate I get:

but I have no glue what this means :-(

I observed the following:
Initially I used "--extents 754"  approx. 2.9GB. If I reduce the size to 512M 
or less, lvcreate is always successful. For any value greater than 512M, the 
behaviour is as described.
