I agree. Sugar should be tolerant of missing files (ENOENT),
inaccessible files (EACCES), or other more exotic conditions (ELOOP?).

potentially of not much benefit. If anyone would like to consider it
... I would suggest removing files one by one from the list given by
"rpm -ql" and see what happens.
