Yep, it happends when '$out/share/mime/application' is not writable.
The xml files under 'application' are going to be generated by
update-mime-database, and the shared-mime-info package has it
pre-generated, so after union "share/mime", an un-writable 'application'
directory point to the store will cause the problem.

Commit 359f06aa fix this by union the "share/mime/packages" directory.

It returns 256 here for the problem, but the derivation still built and
profile got updated, I have no idea about this :-

Does a failing hook (returns #f) supposed to top the profile update?
