And make sure the user running the backend has permission to delete the
file.  (Ideally, just touch it as the user running the backend.)  And
make sure you touch it on the right backend's filesystem (though that
seems easy enough to figure out, I thought I'd mention it just as a
reminder).   Even if you have an NFS/CIFS share for your recordings
directory, using the right backend is a good idea as
ownership/permissions may not work the way you expect with shared
