FYI, there is a possible problem resizing certain JHFS+/JHFSX volumes. Currently the code fails if the jhdr_header size is something other than sector size. When volume size is > 1TiB, depending on the version of Apple's Disk Utility used, the jhdr_header size won't be 512 bytes, is instead 4096 bytes. Details here:
