Here's the full make check output from 5.97. There still seem to be

What happens if you do something like this?  It should generate more
debugging output.

cd tests/mv
VERBOSE=yes make TESTS=no-target-dir

is this OK?

do you have an idea what is going wrong here???

Possibly you have a process whose working directory is
tests/mv/no-target-dir.tmp/26138.  That would explain both the
original failure, and the failure of your attempt to clean up

even after a reboot of the machine I cannot remove that directory.
This loosely reminds me of the "folder from hell" phenomenon back in the 80s on then-current Macintoshes

The no-target-dir script does a "cd tests/mv/no-target-dir.tmp/26138".
I wouldn't expect to see the behavior you're observing, though, since
that script should exit right away.  Perhaps it is generating a
subprocess that isn't exiting, on your host?  Anyway, the VERBOSE=yes
business might tell you what is going wrong.
