Last night we have a power cut.
my FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASEp7 box rebooted when the power came back.

Some fsck processes were put in background and some directories I
did not need could not be erased...  when the fsck's finally ended,
it was possible erase the directories.

If that is your case, just wait.
