Bug Description

Since empty trash shows a dialog, it should have an ellipsis (…) appended to its quicklist item, indicating a follow up step. This is in keeping with the HIG.

Since the command doesn't require further information to complete, there should be no ellipsis. Whether there's a dialogue is irrelevant.

See the third guideline: http://library.gnome.org/devel/hig-book/stable/menus-design.html.en#menu-item-type-command

If we're deliberately disregarding the HIG here, why?

Greg, Yup, I've referred to the HIG and that line before accepting this bug as a papercut.
However, MPT does not like that line,(iirc, he had mentioned that was something he looked to getting fixed for HIG 3.)
It is the reason we have "Shutdown...", "Restart..." , "Logout..." all those are just confirmation dialogs too.
This discussion took place about a yr or so on the ayatana mailing list. (iirc, it was something about loosing user data, I was the one who asked why we have the ellipses in the session menu.. ;) you could try searching for his reply)
