Thanks, that's useful -  to be honest, I'm mainly just messing about.
It's technically possible to do the work of rmid in your own code, just
a bit of a mission..

I saw a lot of lstat64() on my end too, so that's a possibility.
I'd probably have more luck if I knew what file it was talking about...
might try it on FreeBSD for comparison. I also mailed the jini mailing
 list to see if anyone there might know what it's trying to do.

Thanks a lot!
