Bug Description


since about 2 weeks I have a minor problem with Ubuntu Edgy Eft with Gnome:

The trashbin icon on the panel always shows a full trashbin. If I mouse over the icon it says "2 items in Trash" but when I open the trashbin it seems to be empty. Even if I switch "show hidden files on" or by "ls -la" I do not find anything in the trashbin. Deleting the whole trashbin by "rm -rf /home/andre/.Trash" deletes the trashbin but the icon stays the same. The only way to see an empty trash on the panel is by removing the trashbin from the panel and putting it back afterwards. Then the trashbin is empty until it is used again. Sometimes it works 1 or 2 times but after that the trashbin stays full on emptying it.

Greetings, André
