According to JackDesBwa on 6/23/2008 2:00 PM:
|     Can you repeat with 'LC_ALL=C rmdir ...' and see what the English
|
|     translation was?
|
|
| The translation is correct :
| rmdir: failed to remove `/media/win/System Volume Information/': File exists
|
|
|     My guess is that the translation is correct, and that
|     the reason the message is less than stellar is because the errno value
|     being reported is not very applicable to the situation.

All right - my guess was confirmed - the error is not in the translation,
but either in the kernel's rmdir(2) behavior or in coreutils reaction to
the kernel's behavior.

|  You may
|     also want
|     to use strace to determine what errno the kernel was returning.

Hmm, this output isn't from Linux strace.  What OS are you using?  Do you
have ktrace or truss or some other syscall tracer instead?  And is the
NTFS drive local or is it being accessed over a network?
