Ok, fixed the "bug". Not really a coding bug, but a malfunction in
the /bin/rm command.

        # rm -r linux/* --> do not works
        # rm -r linux --> that's working!

I think some strange umsdos filename (like --linux-- ) does the
bad work.

remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
