It looks quite robust. It means that the first start will be slower but
what we can do. => I have pushed it into 3-6 branch:

Just to be sure. removeTree(url) removes only files and not directories.
Is it by intention? I think that both variants would be fine.

BTW: It worked well here with symlinks. I was not able to create
infinite loop with cyclic directories. So, we should be on the safe side
regarding the TODO comment.

Yup, your changes do similar thing like the hack. I am going to double
check it with SUSE build because I was able to reproduce it here with
the SUSE package.

Thanks a lot for digging into it.
