i am able to confirm that /proc/partitions does not have a partition

is there a fix or known issues regarding lvm and devfs?

if you have devfs you should use the devfs long mane to reference your pv
eg: /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc
as to why the error message is misleading i would not say, lvm1 tools are
very buggy wrt the handling of device names.
