Another thing you could try:

$ guestfish -N fs:ntfs -m /dev/sda1 touch /this-is-a-test

This will create an empty NTFS filesystem in a disk image (called
'test1.img'), then touch one file.  Since it doesn't involve any
existing filesystems or guests it's a good test of whether ntfs-3g is
working or broken.

You can also run:

$ strings -e l test1.img

to look at strings in the test image.
