It only removes what it knows about. If it doesn't believe those files 
should be removed (for instance because more than one volume in the volume 
group is believed to exist) then it won't remove it.

It's not always broken, you have crap on disk, and so you have crap on 
disk. Take a fresh partition, create a volume, use it, delete it. I bet it 
goes away completely.
