Why are we getting html-style errors? Is this cause we're not saving the die
handler arround calls to templates which load CGI.pm (And the associated eval)?

The rmdir call is coming from the template stuff (and I'm curious why its
triggereing at all, since noone change the .lastRebuild flag file recently).
What are the permissions/ownerships on data/template/* ?
