 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)).
