I tried mounting with the sync option and couldn't see any difference,
though I found that if I umounted and mounted I could usually see the
updated files regardless of whether I mounted with the sync option.

And then I discovered that after a few mounts and umounts, even though
I was careful to specify "ro," mount started to complain about
filesystem errors on the hfsplus volume. Neither hpfsck nor apple's
Disk First Aid utility could repair the errors so I erased the volume
and am restoring the data (and will leave it alone for now)...
