	This is strange, because lvcreate -v -v writes something like

Duplicate PV R9n6ygz1oDeeOQWQH9vPFWCVirNSQ9rr on /dev/sda4 - using md /dev/md5

which looks as if lvcreate knows that it has to use md5 instead of sda4.

: You might try setting a filter in lvm.conf that excludes everything but
: MD devices, e.g.:
: filter = [ "a|^/dev/md|", "r|.*|" ]
: Not sure if this works at all with LVM1, though.

	Yes, this fixed the problem (tested both on V1 and V2 metadata).
Thanks for a hint!

 Any compiler or language that likes to hide things like memory allocations
 behind your back just isn't a good choice for a kernel.   --Linus Torvalds
