Ah... this confirms what I thought, nl., that only read-write to
non-journalled HFS+ is supported/safe/whatever.  That's why I just use
a HFS+ partition without journalling.

It can still, however, be mounted read-write, while not allowing
writes and then you get a similar message.  That happens when the file
system was not cleanly unmounted and needs to be checked.  That can be
done by simply booting into OSX, which will run a file system check
during bootup.
