Well, I'm surprised too :-O

I have /space/NM/boost which is shared between several folks (it's built once
in several configuration). Then I have /home/ghost/Work/nm_model which
uses /space/NM/boost. When running with --clean
in /home/ghost/Work/nm_model, /space/NM/boost is cleaned too.

Most of the time, it's not desired. When I do it, I just clean too much. When
other folks do it, they get "permission denied" messages.
