Bug#522872: give reasons for file error messages

Package: kaboom
Version: 1.1.0
Severity: normal

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.
