I had a testcase that would cause similar problems, but the new
(20030702) hfsplus driver handles my testcase fine now.

If you are feeling brave and have backed up data, you should try
your test again.  You could also tell me more about your testcase and
i'll try it out.  Or you can make an hfsplus image under Darwin (or
macosX command line) with a command like this:

 hdiutil create -megabytes 1024 -fs HFS+ -layout NONE hdibig.img

and then loopback mount hdibig.img for testing.

if both of our issues have been fixed in 20030702, then i know of no
other reports of problems with roman zippel's driver.
