But in the past Perl always issued an error message when a file
couldn't be created and I would expect one if a file can't be removed.

Uwe, testing with admin permissions shouldn't be necessary because the
temporary files supposed to be deleted were created by the same
process, either with admin or user permissions.  Furthermore, names of
temporary files are only known within the process which created them.
Hence tlmgr cannot remove temporary files from former runs.
