Bug Description

Binary package hint: hfsplus

exact version : 1.0.4-12build1

What I expexted to happen :

hpmount -r /dev/sdb10 worked perfectly to mount my external USB drive HFS+ formatted

What happened :

hpmount /dev/sdb10 (the same but read/write now) crashed the same hard disk drive
now, nor Ubuntu or MacOS X are able to read and even repair the disk

It seems the same problem on this package were already discussed in various forums from a very old date
exactly like this one for example :
http://forum.soft32.com/mac/HD-crash-hpmount-ftopict33061.html

or an old debian bug report, exactly the same problem :
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=231270

and we can see I'm not alone, even a long time after this bug report, like this one in 2007 :
