I have the same kind of issue than here : Create new partition in unallocated space with diskutil

but on disk0 ! I don't know what to do anymore :(

So i can't modify anything with gpt. I had Ubuntu installed on a partition, deleted it with Disk Utility which got stuck during the process, had to force quit. Reboot the mac, and that's when it became weird :

Recovery HD was no more hidden and mounted as a standard partition on my Desktop, 20GB of the former Ubuntu partition vanished !

I tried the functions activated in the Debug Mode of Disk Utility, resetting PRAM, BootCamp tells me "the startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition", and nothing different when booting on Recovery HD to use Disk Utility.

Macbook-Pro-de-Ced:~ Ced$ diskutil list

I don't even have the grey zone for the unallocated space like on this post : How can I resize a partition with Disk Utility?

Wasn't exactly feeling like modifying the GPT table via the terminal with all my data on the disk, so I just completely erase the disk after backing up my data and reinstall OS X booting on a USB stick with Mavericks on it :

Everything is back to normal :)
