It looks like it is the hda16 partition that accounts for that difference. 
It's about 10G. Look at the lvmdiskscan listing in my normal envirnonment:

[...]
lvmdiskscan -- /dev/hda14 [      10.00 GB] Extended LVM partition [0x8E]
lvmdiskscan -- /dev/hda15 [      10.00 GB] Extended LVM partition [0x8E]
lvmdiskscan -- /dev/hda16 [      10.06 GB] USED LVM whole disk

Why does the line for hda16 say "USED LVM whole disk" and not "Extended LVM 
partition [0x8E]" like the others?
