cleaning up lost+found



Debians,

I goofed up a little while ago and connected two SCSI devices with the
same ID.  I've cleaned up the mess, but now I have a number of files
in /home/lost+found that I can't seems to remove.  Not even as root!

Typical output of ls -l on that directory looks like:

  b--s----wx    1 49439    5209     172,  30 Jan 21  1978 #53340

Totally weird, that is.  I've moved the original and created a new
lost+found with the same owner.group and permissions as the original
but would like to get rid of the gunk above.  Any ideas how?

I've tried chown'ing and chmod'ing, but all I get is

  chown: <filename>: Operation not permitted

Trying to rm -rf gives

  rm: cannot unlink `<filename>': Operation not permitted

TIA,
