My guess is that lvm wont move your pe's to one of the other partitions
because the lv is striped across three different partitions and pvmoving one
of the stripes to a partition with another stripe already on it would defy
the purpose of multi-striped lvs.

So the error message is a bit missleading but still correct. Lvm has nowhere
to move the pe's from /dev/hda9 to, because it tries to keep the lv across
three different partitions.
