This way can't allow us to delete files created in the directory
with the special ACE, the full rights of the "creator owner".

The default temporary directory is C:/TEMP with the ACE on NT4.0.
The ACE is used to realize the semantics like the S_ISVTX bit on UNIX.
So we should be able to freely operate files created by ourselves
in the directory. But we can't delete them created by the new DLL.

I propose ntsec adds the DELETE permission of the owner to files
created in such directories.
