    Are you deleting these files from an external hard drive or anywhere else slightly unusual? I think I recall running across a similar situation with a weird filesystem or device, but I cannot recall the specifics at the moment.

    I'm having a funny issue with Trash too.

    Say i watch a Video in QT X. Then i quit the app, drag the video to the trash then want to clear it straight away, it doesn't want to go, it says it's still in use even though QT is quit right out.

    It takes about 15 mins for it to want to delete..... hmmm

    I got told to run this command

    sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash

    and it fixed it.
