The child path will usually be created on the same filesystem as the
parent, but I'm not sure that's *always* the case because I haven't
studied the details of how the child path is created by the copy code. 
If the child path in some cases is "created" by overwriting an existing
path, then perhaps it can be on a different FS.  If it is created from
scratch and the operating system allows something like a "mount point"
to be defined without a directory already existing at that path, then
too perhaps the child can be created on a different FS.

Rather than try to investigate all the possibilities, I went for the
simpler solution of passing the actual child path, which is the same as
what it was doing before my changes.

That still doesn't eliminate the possibility of a grandchild path being
on a different FS, but we can't fix that without a complete overhaul of
the sleep-for-timestamps infrastructure.

Yes, I considered that, and agree that's OK because the deletes are of no
