Like your editing style :)
That said, any HFS+-formatted volume has indeed those four
files/directories you mentioned. HFS+ is basically an extended HFS, in
other words: Apple just extended the then-standard HFS System. Your
entry in /etc/fstab tells the mount-application to try to guess what
kind of filesystem might be on the said volume. Since the signature of
HFS and HFS+ are basically the same, mount mounts your volume as an
HFS-Disk, not too far away.Try to replace 'auto' with 'hfsplus', thus
telling mount which kind of filesystem to expect.
There is one more thing: I did had some problems using a MacOS Volume
within Linux, so I recommend to mount the volume as read-only by
replacing 'rw' with 'ro'.
