	Ah, fair enough. I upgraded to LVM-2.01.15 but now I have a related
problem. If I force the physical volume size using --setphysicalvolumesize,
then doing vgreduce/vgextend resets it to the maximum size: 

# pvcreate -f -M2 --setphysicalvolumesize=10000 /dev/sd[pq]1
  Physical volume "/dev/sdp1" successfully created
  Physical volume "/dev/sdq1" successfully created

# vgcreate vg20 -s32M -M2 /dev/sdp1 /dev/sdq1
  Volume group "vg20" successfully created

# vgdisplay -v vg20
<cut>
  --- Physical volumes ---
  PV Name               /dev/sdp1     
  PV UUID               8H24mH-k5TA-n3O0-sQUF-e8sB-dteF-luHLJF
  PV Status             allocatable
  Total PE / Free PE    312 / 312
   
  PV Name               /dev/sdq1     
  PV UUID               M13ArL-7b9d-SvLJ-ik6H-pRYO-hqgg-WWaPRP

  Total PE / Free PE    312 / 312
   
# vgreduce vg20 /dev/sdp1 ; vgextend vg20 /dev/sdp1
  Removed "/dev/sdp1" from volume group "vg20"
  Volume group "vg20" successfully extended

# vgdisplay -v vg20
