xhfs & MacOS standard disks corruption

has anybody made similar experiences with xhfs (from hfsutils-3.2-1b):

Under MacOs 8.6 cleaned the disk with DiskFirstAid 8.5.2. 
Boot into Linux, startx, xhfs & open the cleaned partition, transfer a
file, in my case 9MB, to the mounted partition.
Afterwards closed the xhfs shut the machine down to reboot into MacOS.

A check on this partition gives me an error in the catalog tree. 
Ok, doing a repair to it works. But as it happened to me doing that
several times without checking/reparing the partition I got an
unreparable partition which I had to erase.
This is done with 2.2.10 & 2.2.11.
Question: is xhfs bad? or is there something uggly with hfs support?

Thanks for any responses
