Not really unfortunately.  I have been thinking about this a lot though.  I've 
never seen it and I'm not sure what the next move really is.  Someone did 
suggest (and sorry for not posting sooner) that you should run lsof 
against /dev/mapper/control and see if something is keeping it open.

Hopefully this will work.  I guess you were able to remove an lv previously so 
you shouldn't have an issue doing this.  One thing you didn't answer (and I 
didn't ask) is if you had problems extending any other lvs.  The output of 
all the tools show the devices in a good state, so to me it just doesn't make 
sense.  Try the lsof bit and see if anything interesting shows up.
