This has been fixed in File-Path 2.06 which has been released to CPAN.

The patch also contains a couple of documentation typo fixes and tweaks 
(I took the liberty of removing the email addresses of Charles Bailey 
and Tim Bunce as these are just spam magnets nowadays).

rmtree() also produces better diagnostics and behaves gracefully if you 
try to remove the directory you are in (as this otherwise triggers the 
race prevention code and aborts).

Patch against blead.
