Check wether "fakeroot rm -rf $PROBLEMATIC_DIR" works and wether "rm
-rf $PROBLEMATIC_DIR" works, you will know wether you're victim of the
fakeroot mechanism or not. If both are failing, strace the thing and
check what fails. I spent once some time figuring why an ext2 attr
forbid the modification of a file (chattr(1), lsattr(1)).
