Would it work if you were to put the drive into an external
USB or firewire case and start it after the system is 
running?

If it is a problem at boot time only, it may not bother 
with the volume information after boot. Just a guess, 
may be worth trying.

We use rsync with 300GB external firewire drives to backup 
our servers without any problems, but they are not 
formatted as part of an LVM group.
