Unfortunately it doesn't have support for HFS+ filesystem journals. At
least it didn't last I researched the topic.
This means you have to switch off filesystem journalling in Mac OS X
to get it to work.
Which in turn means Linux won't mount the file system R/W if it is
marked as dirty.
Which in turn means you need to check the filesystem before you can
write to it again.

I would really like to see this.
I very much dislike FAT32, and use HFS+ on my portable USB hard disk
for transferring large files between Linux and Mac OSX.
(now if only Windows supported HFS...)
