No go ...

Well, it worked for me on 3 out of 4 partitions.

With the 4th partition I get the following error:

[icebox:/] dominik% sudo diskutil enableJournal /Users
Pre-allocating the journal file failed on volume /Users (No space left on device)
Try using a smaller (4096 k) journal size
Journaling has been enabled on /Users

This is strange, because I have 1,5 GB free on this partition.

Anybody had the same problem?

Worked on all four partitions of my desktop machine's main drive, but not on my (unpartitioned - gasp!) ibook drive where I got that same error message. Neither the pure terminal approach nor the disk utility hack worked.

Over one gig free space. I don't remember ever doing anything strange with the disk formatting.

I don't have a clue...

Shouldn't the volume be /Volumes/Users instead of just /Users

According to a MacSlash posting, you may need to optimize your drive.
The poster says that "In my case [the hard drive] was so fragmented that it couldn't find the 8 contiguous megs it needed and suggested a smaller (4 meg) file without telling me how to specify the smaller file. (oops)"
