Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.4
Severity: normal

With /tmp NFS mounted, dpkg issues the following:
rm: cannot remove directory `/tmp/dpkghXB5Pb': Directory not empty
rm cleanup failed, code 256

By the time I get to examine said directory, it is empty and can be removed. 
As discussed in


(ca. 1999) this is more than likely an issue with dpkg presuming "local" fs 
semantics - dpkg unlinking a file while it's still open, and not waiting 
till the dir is actually empty before trying to rmdir it.

This is not a bug in dpkg; if your filesystem doesn't have UNIX 
semantics, you are on your own and will see spurious errors like this one.

I'm closing this bug.
