PLEASE, how can I get back to a single OS X partition that fills up the whole disk?

I had a MacBook with Windows 7 (on a partition created with boot camp), ubuntu (on a partition created with disk utility).
Now I removed both the Ubuntu and Windows partitions with disk utility.
Now I have a 130GB Mac partition that I can't resize to fill up the whole HD.
I also found out that I have a 2,33GB Linux Swap partition that can't remove.

When I try to increase the size of the Mac Partition, I get the error message MediaKit reports partition (map) too small.

rEFIT's partition inspector gives me the following:

* Report for internal hard disk *

Current GPT partition table:
# Start LBA End LBA Type
1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT)
2 409640 273287559 Mac OS X HFS+
3 273287560 273289513 EFI System (FAT)

Current MBR partition table:
# A Start LBA End LBA Type

MBR contents:
Boot Code: GRUB
