Description kalle1 2017-07-23 18:43:02 UTC
After cloning into `/tmp` and opening it with NetBeans, the deletion of any class fails due to `Cannot delete file [file] in [directory]` which is insufficient feedback because the user has no idea why the deletion failed.

The fact that the project misses some dependencies has no impact on the requirement of good software to always provide the best possible feedback.

experienced with 8.2 and dev-20170723 with Oracle JDK 8u131
