probably not a leopard specific problem but heres my problem

today when i was emptying the trash on of the files wouldn't delete because it said it was in use.. so i went to terminal and did rm -rf ~/.Trash/ and then the trash was empty but then when i went to move something to the trash the message came up "The item "PLACEITEMNAMEHERE" will be deleted immediately" then it gave the options okay or cancel, but i don't want my items to be deleted on the spot.. why did this happen?????????

It happened because you deleted the Trash folder and all of its contents rather than just the contents

to solve it do this in terminal

mkdir ~/.Trash/
killall Finder
