My USB key seems full, problem

Bug Description

I want to copy some files to my USB key but Nautilus File Manager says "error when copying to /media/usbdisk - Target has not enough free space".

So I delete enough file and try again. But it does not work even if I delete all files. I have to empty the trash and then it works.

But how can the user know that he must empty the trash? The error message says "not enough free space" and I guessed it means "delete something to recover space" but not "empty the trash".

The trash seems to be on the key and user-related. If the trash is full by another user files, will I be able to empty the trash to copy my files on my USB key ?

Dapper 6.06, Gnome 2.14.3
