More importantly, the HFS+ driver itself still likes to eat file

Does this still hold true? I checked the changelog of the latest hfsplus version
but could not find any direct hints according to this issue in the changes of
last year. So I thought it's worth asking...
If yes (i.e. still dangerous), can you specify the risk more precisely? The
kernel config menu (2.6.8, CONFIG_HFSPLUS_FS) doesn't contain warnings like
EXPERIMENTAL or even DEPRECIATED.
