If you use the full disk as the physical volume instead of partitioning
it, then you would not need to take it offline to extend it.

It sounds like fdisk did not recreate the partition with exactly the
same start location.  It is best to put fdisk into sector mode when
doing things like this so that it will not round cylinder numbers and
possibly hide minor changes from you.
