Cannot delete a file on 2.4.18



Hi, I get the error "Operation not permitted" when I try to delete
a file as root, see some commands below.

- there is no "i" attribute
- it's a problem with the files and not the upper directories
  since I can delete a similar file in the same directory
- fsck -f doesn't find any error on the partition
- the partition is mounted rw

If this is not the right place to submit this bug because
it's a kernel bug or if you need further information, tell me.

Thanks
Alain
