Many thanks for your report (it's the first one I receive ! :))
The behaviour you describe is typical when "something" went wrong during various checks, for example if there is a file that the file system doesn't completly describe, but this kind of simple corruption should be detected by Disk First Aid and hpfsck I think, and that's not your case so it's quite interresting.

I don't know if there's a --debug or --verbose option, but maybe it could be useful for looking at exactly what happens when it stops?

I'd not tested resizing HFS+ with OS X on it, and maybe I lack support
for undocumented features of this filesystem, if there is any.

The only real things I could think of could be bundles or journalling. But then again, I turned journalling off, so that shouldn't really be an issue.

What could be quite interresting is an image of a (maybe small) FS that
parted with my patch fail to resize. I could work on it without any right
on the raw hard drive device, it's better for your computers because
debugging this kind of tool is a quite destructive process ! :)

I get that :) I'll try and make up such an image.
