Right you are. i think i should reconsider my point of view - indeed
if i'm that paranoid i should eliminate any chances of losing data -
disconnect the dirve(s) is the best solution for this.

And then, i think, that the question is more relevant to anaconda
mailing group.support then to LVM group. Since it's anaconda that
tries to activate the VG.
Thank you Stuart!
