I can confirm this, too:

Debian GNU/Linux 5.0
Kernel: 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64

Packages and Versions:
lvm2: 2.02.39-7
drbd8-modules-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64: 2.6.26+8.0.14-6+lenny1
drbd8-utils: 2:8.0.14-2


h1:~# pvcreate /dev/drbd0
  Physical volume "/dev/drbd0" successfully created
h1:~# vgcreate vg_drbd /dev/drbd0
  Volume group "vg_drbd" successfully created
h1:~# lvcreate -n lv_drbd -L 1G vg_drbd
  device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
  Aborting. Failed to activate new LV to wipe the start of it.
