Bug#522872: give reasons for file error messages
I just did an upgrade with kaboom, which appeared to have worked well. But I
saw a few error messages of the sort
Could not remove "x"
Be that as it may, it would have been very helpful if it gave the reason for
these errors. On a code level, I think RecursiveDirJob::Error::message()
should print errno (or whatever the equivalent in C++) which each message.
Another random thought for further debuggability: Write a kaboom.log to the
home directory with the error messages, if any.
