I'm using Cygwin 1.5.25, and when I try removing

rm: FATAL: directory `foo' changed dev/ino

Could this be a reoccurrence of this old problem?
Given the different format of the message and the abundance of alternate but like-named tools on your machine, I have to wonder if you're getting this message from Cygwin's 'rm'.
Are you?


I think so:
$ which rm

But how can I be sure?

Invoke '/usr/bin/rm' directly. If you still see a problem, we need to see the permissions of the directory you're working with ('ls -l' and 'getfacl') and its contents as well as the input and results you get. Perhaps stracing might be necessary as well but I'll hold off asking for that right now. Let's see if the above helps you find the problem.
