Yves, thanks this seems to have fixed this, i still agree with Andreas that lvm_check_partitioned_dev should be
checked.
i wuld use LVM_DEVICE_TYPE_MD instead of 2 in the patch
as for partitioned md device i believe the major is different from 9, but i would not suggest using them
with lvm anyway.

patch with my mod follows for the lazy,
pleas check it in cvs for the time being.
