We create a directory that cannot be removed, confirm that
it cannot be removed, and then fix it like:

  chmod 0 foo &&
  test_must_fail git clean -d -f &&
  chmod 755 foo

If the middle step fails but leaves the directory (e.g., the
bug is that clean does not notice the failure), this
pollutes the test repo with an unremovable directory. Not
only does this cause further tests to fail, but it means
that "rm -rf" fails on the whole trash directory, and the
user has to intervene manually to even re-run the test script.

We can bump the "chmod 755" recovery to a test_when_finished
block to be sure that it always runs.
