In addition to Richard's suggestion, a couple things come to mind:
(1) Ability to delete a file (or rename it) depends on the permissions
of the directory which contains it, not on the file itself.
(2) If you're doing the delete/chown on an NFS client, ownerships could
be different than expected if UID mapping is broken (NFSv4 with a
mismatched domain), or if remote root is being mapped to "nobody"
on the NFS server. Similar issues could happen for a CIFS client.
