Use dmsetup:

(the output above shows dm is using 252 as its major number for this

At a guess it looks like you somehow removed the PV from the VG while a
logical volume was mapped on it.

First of all, thanks for the info. I am not a LVM expert and this is useful information. dmsetup shows this:

root neriak:/sys/block/sda/sda4/holders/dm-1# dmsetup info --maj 252 --min 1

I think I somehow messed up while trying to get rid of /dev/sda4. I used a GUI for this not the CLI, first I tried to move the extents to other PVs (which I think is that pvmove does) and then to actually remove it from the group (which is probably what vgreduce does). If I am not mistaken, the first operation gave an error even though it appeared to have worked somehow at the time.

it seems to be some leftover from the pvmove operation, unfortunately i
have no idea if some data was not actually moved correctly.
did you record the error message the pvmove operation reported?
