Oh, and just to make sure: if we're doing an update at a depth that
should affect a directory A but ordinarily would not affect its
children (or its non-file children), and we get a delete for A, we
really should be doing a recursive delete anyway, right?

(ie, the problem here is that the test cases fail, not that they fail
with an unintelligible error, right?)
