Sorry, I had HFS+ in mind instead of HFS. I use HFS+ myself and I've
had the same issue with it and, in my case, rebooting into OSX solves
the problem, because OSX checks the file system on boot and marks it
as 'clean'. And, regarding the other mails, I did switch off
journaling for my shared HFS+ partition (on purpose to be able to use
it on the linux side).

I'm afraid I can't offer much help with HFS and OS9...

fsck.hfs is included in the "hfsprogs" package, but I don't have any
experience with it.
