I use hfs+ daily. Read is perfect, never had a problem. However, with
write I can't make to many comments since I use it on a flash device
(holding my gpg key) so I mount it ro. Occasionally I use mount it rw,
and have only come accrossed a couple issues (it doesn't like large
files, sometimes), but those were with an older kernel. Oh, and after 32
rw mounts, you need to use the hfpmount on it, which will fail but will
allow the kernel to mount it.

I use 2.6.7.
