It tests that "clean -d" is happy if a blind rmdir(2) removes the
directory.  If it fails for whatever reason (e.g. add "exit(0)" at
the beginning of cmd_clean(), for example) to remove the directory,
we do leave an empty unreadable directory behind.

But as long as that directory is empty, that will not cause us to
remove the trash directory at the end, so we should be OK.
