I cannot reproduce this, does it still happen with

the behavior seems indeed to have changed in simple empty directories seem to be removed correctly. non-empty directories, with other non-empty directories in them, exhibit the following behavior:

Delete Command Pass #1: directory to be deleted stays, some, but not all, of its contents seems to be removed, some subfolders and files remain with no obvious pattern

Delete Command Pass #2: directory gets deleted with all remaining contents going with it

so basically i can get a non-empty directory deleted by executing the delete command twice. let me know if you can reproduce.

Thanks for reporting. This issue has been fixed in the SVN
repository and will be available with the next version.

Looks like a bug in OS X. It seems that FSOpenIterator cannot handle changes in the directory contents very well.
