unlink seems to run as root.
i have set file permissions to 444 (owner root) and tried to open this file for writing from a script. php said 'permission denied'. then i tried to unlink this file with success.

This is not a bug but how the filesystem works. Permissions for erasing a file is according to the permissions on the directory and not the file.
