But the "confdir-14B--" tree is a different story.  No such gradual pruning works, and neither does coreutils' `rm`.  (The latter says "No space left on device", whatever that means.)

What system calls does coreutils rm execute?  E.g., something like this:

sudo dtruss -f sudo -u $USER rm -fr confdir-14B--

(This is complicated because OS X apparently doesn't have anything simple like 'strace'.)

Sorry, I'm not a programmer.  I don't know what system calls *anything* executes :)  And I have no idea what strace is or what alternatives could be used instead or how to use those alternatives.

Someone who knows what they're talking about will have to answer your question.
