So it seems lvcreate does not respect the unit in power of 1000?

Use either:
  lvcreate -l 6127
or
  lvcreate -l 100%FREE


Yes, thanks. I know.


But I thought you guys would like to hear from bugs?

Why is it possible to use vgdisplay with units power of 1000, if you
cant use lvcreate with that kind of units?

The lvcreate man page says:

     -L, --size LogicalVolumeSize[bBsSkKmMgGtTpPeE]
