    I've been using clonezilla for few years now, always in 'beginner mode'. I usually create images of select partitions. I've never needed to dig deeper so thanks to clonezilla team for preparing the mode.

    The only thing I have to keep in mind is the "The destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one." limitation.

    Can anyone tell me of any known issues with clonezilla and LVM partitioning scheme I could stumble upon and how to deal with them? For starters, does lVM change anything regarding the "destination/source size" limitation?

    "Can anyone tell me of any known issues with clonezilla and LVM partitioning scheme I could stumble upon and how to deal with them?

Therefore the limitation is still there.
