Thanks. The strace doesn't help, though. The rmdir of foo works
without any problem, so not even a single debug output is generated.
I have an idea or two what could be the problem of the netapp drive,
but that requires testing with a Cygwin DLL with enhanced debug output
in the unlink/rmdir functionality.
Would you mind to play guinea pig if I send you the link to such a
DLL via PM?
