Trash can thinks its full
OK, here is the story: I was emptying a USB key, a few files at at a time, into trash. It was getting pretty full, so I deleted a bunch of files in the trash. Apparently I wasn't watching very carefully, because I deleted something that had only been partially moved into trash.
Needless to say the move operation crashed. However, my trash is now completely empty, but when I try to move something there I get the error message:
"The Trash has reached its maximum size! Cleanup the Trash manually."
So I obviously fubared something. Can anyone get me back on track?
PS: already tried rebooting, and I already tried increasing the maximum space allotted for trash.
PPS: It works again... no idea why though. It just decided it wasn't full anymore. Anyone care to venture an explanation of what happened?
