anyway, it would be nice to check it: if you open a new window and manually
rmdir, than that's your decision. while, in contrast, if you stay in the
same window, and a program (which you might just have written) tries to do
that, than you obviously have a programm error.

a check would help detecting that programm error earlier and on the right
place. hm. well. you'd gain some minutes of debugging ... :-)
