I don't think this patch will help at this point. Your 1.6.1 salvager
(which doesn't have this patch) has already run and deleted the '..'
directory in what is apparently an orphaned directory.\

That seems reasonable to me. Failing to delete the .. in an orphaned
directory probably shouldn't be an assertion (just a warning).
