Interesting, I have this in /etc/smartd.conf
DEVICESCAN -n standby -a -m root -s (L/../../6/00|S/../.././00)

but according to the selftest logs it seems it is only checking sdb but *not* sda. I'll have to check this out.
A manual short test succeeded.
However, a failing disk should not affect LVM, should it?
