Actually it's related only to hdiutil: attach failed - Resource busy

solved by

hdiutil info | grep /dev/disk | grep partition | cut -f 1 | xargs hdiutil detach

Maybe add this line before conversion?

I believe this was fixed by one of the other recent commits... I can't reproduce the error anymore.
