If --alloc anywhere isn't doing the trick, you'll need to dig into
the -vvvv output to try to understand why.  There might be
a config option setting getting in the way disabling the choice you want
it to make, or if it's an algorithmic issue you might try to coax it to
do the right thing by removing whatever choice it has in the allocation
by specifying the actual pv:extent ranges it must use on the command line.
