#2531: Workaround for broken remove() broken
 Reporter: Niklas Angare <li51ckf02_at_[hidden]> | Owner: bemandawes

Milestone: Boost 1.38.0 | Component: filesystem
  Version: Boost Development Trunk | Severity: Problem

 operations_test fails on QNX 6.4.0 with:[[BR]]
 Warning: line 820 exception reports default_error_condition().value() 1,
 should be 93

 Line 821 also fails with boost::filesystem::remove: Operation not

 The problem is that a workaround for QNX and other OSes in posix_remove()
 compares the return value of unlink() against EPERM instead of comparing
 errno against EPERM.

 Could it ever have worked? EPERM is typically 1 while the return value
 from unlink() in case of failure is typically -1.

 The attached patch resolves the issue and the operations_test test now
 passes. As a side note, the test also passes fully with the workaround
 disabled on QNX 6.4.0.
