I have hfsplus and hfsutils installed, so that isn't the problem.
I now wonder if Linux supports reading HFS+ filesystems, but not
writing to them, and that is causing this phenomena.
My initial plan was to have a HFS+ partition so that mac users could
use rsync to backup to it, without losing their resource forks. Now
I'm beginning to think that may not work.
