Mac os x delete file operation not permitted

Can't delete/change permissions on folder?!? even as root (solved)

Then, after googling around, I got a lot of semi-useful hints. Apparently, I was not the first one with this problem: Anyhow, this all was not helping a lot.

I found some useful hints in the forum of my favorite German newsticker here. There is some hint!
