Unless it's been changed, the uid argument for hfsplus was purely
for OS8/OS9 volumes that didn't have permissions. The permission
override arguments only get used if the permissions block in the
catalog entry is all zero, but OSX sets them to be able to use
UNIX style permissions and file types.

In other words, "it's not a bug, it's a feature"...
