AFAIK, only HFS, HFS+ (journaled HFS) isn't there yet.

Yes, that's what I thought. Interestingly though his mount command
shows that it's mounted rw, yet if he couldn't write to it I'd expect
some kind of error.

IIRC (and my experience had to do with using an iPod as a drive, so
keep that in mind), you didn't get an error from the write.  I think
the write occurred as far as Linux was concerned, but the device
wouldn't actually commit the write to disk because of the journal.

Once you turned off journaling, writes generated an SELinux error.
That should be fixed (HFS is supposed to be treated the same as NFS in
later SELinux versions).  I had BZ'd that glitch and I think that was
the response.

So Dave, under OS X you can turn journalling OFF on the device, then
reboot into Linux and try it without journalling.
It's something like:

sudo diskutil disableJournal /Volumes/VOLUME_NAME
