Thanks for the suggestion, and I would very much like to do that, but
as I said, the replacement drive is a bit smaller than the old one,
thus I cannot make as big partition :-).

I was considering hacking vgcfgrestore to ignore the fact that the
size mismatches, are there problems to be expected? Like severe VG
corruption.. I might just as well try anything, it can't be any worse
than the current situation.
