I could still reproduce the problem in a VM with the latest packages.

This is the problem: Recent lvm does not synchronize to udev when it
doesn't lock (which can happen with --ignorelockingfailure or --sysinit
- they consider this a bug now). Depending on the number of udev rules,
lvm might exit before all symlinks have been generated.

I could reproduce this 3 out of 4 times with udisks installed, and a lot
less often when it was not installed. It is mere coincidence that you
can't reproduce it anymore.
