A friend gave me the hint to enlarge the partition by one block. It helped,
after rebooting to let the kernel reload the partition table, pvmove ran
successfully.

The partition in question looked like:
$ LC_ALL=C fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 4867 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1             1         8     64228+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2   *         9       518   4096575    b  Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda3           519      4867  34933342+   5  Extended
/dev/hda5           519       773   2048256   83  Linux

/dev/hda9          2304      2813   4096543+  8e  Linux LVM

/dev/hda10         2814      3323   4096543+  8e  Linux LVM    NOT WORKING
/dev/hda10         2814      3324   4096543+  8e  Linux LVM        WORKING
[the rest of the drive was already empty]
