Lately, the file system hierarchy of the Haiku operating system changed ; the stage2 bootloader was renamed from beos/system/zbeos to system/haiku_loader.
As a consequence, rEFIt does not detects Haiku anymore.
The attached patch changes the OS detection string for Haiku to "\x06" "system\x0c" "haiku_loader", which should work.
Another option would be to search for this string :
"\00

    My message seems to have been trimmed — The other string that could be searched in the Haiku boot sector is "\00Failed to load OS. Press any key to reboot...\00".
