That only happens if the sticky tag is numeric.  If the sticky tag is
symbolic, then the remove is allowed; the tag is removed from the file
rather than the file itself being removed.  This is by design, but
current thinking is that the design is defective.  Unfortunately, no one
has gotten around to fixing the code, as far as I know.
