VIB uninstallation dont remove files which had sticky bit set

    Hi, I see the below scenario. Would like to know if it's an expected behavior or not.

    1. Install a VIB which has a file ( say /etc/cim/<dir>/a.txt ) with sticky bit set.

    2. After installation and reboot, modify the file by writing something to it. This creates a .#a.txt in the visorFS ( expected as per visorFS design )

    3. Now uninstall the VIB

    4. After uninstallation and reboot, it is seen that the file still exists in /etc/cim/<dir>/a.txt

    Does it mean VIB uninstallation dont take care of removing the .# files and in the next bootup, backup.sh just removes the .# and keep it as the original name?

    Thanks,
