XENIX and early versions of SCO UNIX would not allow the deletion of running
executables. Almost all installation scripts for even the most minor of
updates refused to run unless the system was in single-user mode to avoid
problems with this, much to the annoyance of customers. It was corrected in
some version of SCO UNIX (probably 3.2.4 or 5.0.0), perhaps by making the
reference count for an inode include the use of the file as executable text.
