I suspect it's by design: not in the sense that someone said "don't let
it do this", but just by the fact that the existence of a file is a
property of the *directory* that it's in. When you delete a file, you
modify the directory, not the file. So if you delete three files, and
commit, it's an atomic change to the directory.

I doubt that helps much, but perhaps it clarifies what is happening.


"Outlook not so good." That magic 8-ball knows everything! I'll ask
about Exchange Server next.
