Re: svn: Can't remove 'db/transactions/1-1.txn': Directory not empty

More on the issue:

Current solution for MacOS features a rewinddir() after removing each
item in the directory. Isn't that a bit of an overkill? I propose a
different approach:

1. do readdir(),
2. if there's nothing to delete, we're done
2. remove everything in the directory
3. do rewinddir()
4. goto 1.

This approach features much less calls to rewinddir() while still
making sure everything is deleted.

It can also be used on every OS, not just MacOS to be on the safe side.
