This has been there for a long time, indeed. The test harness is
trying to delete the entire directory mentioned in the "Warning:
cleanup failed" message and attempting to do so (with File.delete())
fails. This could be due to a process still holding on to a file
descriptor for the directory mentioned or something still active in
the directory at that time. It's harmless, but could probably be
resolved if someone really had an itch to figure it out.
