Subjectbuglet in ext2 sticky bit?
On 2.2.13pre9 a user cannot delete a file in /tmp even if it
is writable for everyone:

japetus /tmp ls -ld . aap
drwxrwxrwt 5 root root 1024 Oct 24 22:17 .
-rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 30 Oct 24 22:11 aap
japetus /tmp rm -f aap
rm: cannot unlink `aap': Operation not permitted
japetus /tmp id
uid=363(fvm) gid=215(sec) groups=215(sec),3972(owner),9998(inet1),9999(inet2),9997(inet3)
japetus /tmp uname -a
Linux japetus.localdomain 2.2.13pre9 #1 Sat Sep 18 21:32:21 MEST 1999 i486 unknown

AFAIK a file writable for everyone should be deletable when
+t on the parent dir.
