  Modified files:
    bin/rm               rm.1 rm.c 
  Handle the case where the -P flag is specified for a read-only file
  earlier, and more gracefully. Previously, this combination would be
  ignored early in the code where permissions are tested and fail later
  with a very unhelpful "permission denied" error.
  Instead, test for this flag in the same block that generates the
  "override?" messages for read-only files, but instead of trying
  to guess what the user has in mind, generate an error and exit.
  Update the man page to reflect this new behavior.
