I tried to fix it with attached patch but it doesn't work at all - which
is what I expected, bash is the only thing I really understand. From what
I can think of, with every ACL operation except remove, it's okay to check
whether an identifier really exists. But for remove, it should be possible
to remove an ACL even if the identifier has been removed before.

Anyone out there to help?
