Just a thought - its what I've done, since /var is in my route partition 
which is NOT lvm (although the rest is).

Pick some subdirectory of /var thats not essential for the real time 
operation (I used /var/cache) and make a lvm logical volume for it.  
Then mount it at some other place, mv the data across, and then umount 
it and remount it on /var/cache.  I got back about 1.9G of space for 
the rest of /var by that mechanism.
