 err, no, ENOENT is only returned if a portion of the path passed in is
 broken.  I think it should work otherwise.

 File.Delete(), in which you pass in the full pathname, works.

+Fixed in svn r62269.
+In general dangling symlinks are a problem for io operations in mono
+because the concept doesn't exist in windows.  I doubt we're handling
+them at all consistently.
