That 'rm' was unnecessary to begin with, because none of the previous
tests wrote and left behind a file 'failures', ever.  Though one could
argue that the original author was careful and added that 'rm failures'
as a protection against future changes to previous tests...  Dunno, we
are talking about a test that checked the stderr of 'test_cmp', so
anything is possible :)
