Just because the drive is new doesn't mean it's not bust(!). 

I would do as someone suggested and run badblocks on the disk and if it gives
errors then take it back. If not then it may be related to some reports we saw
a while ago about LVM reading past the end of a SCSI disk - you can easily
verify this by making a filesystem on the PV rather that using LVM (If you're
happy with your backups that is...).
