Looking at your example rubenlm, it appears like a case that is missing in rmtree().

You are trying to chmod your tree if a file in there cannot be removed because of the permissions. This sounds like something we need to add in rmtree() directly, for example under a "force_permissions" flag that would handle permission failures by trying to chmod.

I think rmtree() should not try to delegate the hard work to third party code, and should try to handle as much failures as possible, 
and just return errors.
