I have seen these occasionally, but only when testing the BDB backend
and usually only with Apache. The last time I got them (1.5.2 I think
since I didn't see them when running tests for 1.5.3) I looked at this
a little bit and couldn't see where it would be a
permissions/read-only problem or a tag-alongs-holding-files problem
because it looked like we were using safe_rmtree where appropriate.

I suspected maybe a BDB handle (or whatever they are) being left open
(maybe for caching purposes or maybe just a leak), but that's just a
guess. Is it always BDB repositories that fail to cleanup for others?
 I'm fairly certain it always has been for me.
