EFM throws permission errors on occasion.
Open, Incoming QueuePublic

Description

In the home directory. Ie i try to delete a directory and throws the permission error. If i rm -rf the same directory it works fine.

Might be unrelated -or because those are the dirs i delete most- but usually happens with the dirs (pkg src etc) of apps i build with PKGBUILDS on arch.

and ... what is the problem dir/file and what are its permissions?

At least that is the one i noticed it lately. Has happened with other stuff in the home directory (ie music) in the past but have no idea on what permissions those had. I'd expect that EFM can remove anything that i can rm -rf in /home

oh. no read or write permissions... :) that would be why... rm can't delete it. you need -f to force it... :) so that explains why. still owned by you though.

Does it make sense for EFM to us the equivalent of rm -f (no idea how efm deletes stuff) or we can close this?
