Dave. you are right: Gparted was the trouble maker.
I deleted the hidden partitions and re-partition them with Tiger's disk util, and copy the backup to it with SD, every thing is fine now. It took less than 20 minutes, but the trouble-shooting took one week. I knew it should be faster if just backup it, but my curiosity drives me.

It is also worthwhile. Through reading elsewhere, I know now that Linux parted is not GPT compatible and it will mess up partition table. The gptsync from rEFit can repair this. Also I learned during the struggle that disk util from Leopard can dynamically partition disk without data destruction, just like the BootCamp assistant.

Thanks again Dave, and happy birthday although it's a bit late.
