Unhappy Broken trash, lost HDA space...?


SuSE 9.2, KDE 3.4...

I was moving files recently and a "Disk Critically Full" error popped up. OK, so I went through and cleared up my home directory (hda5) by right-click-->Move To Trash. I moved a good 15GB to the Trash. Once cleared up, I right-clicked the (desktop) Trash but there was no "empty the trash" option... I opened the Trash folder and none of my files were present!

I figured it may have been related to my ext3 Journaling, so I let it sit for a while and rebooted later in the evening. My KDiskMonitor still reads my hda5 (/home) as 99.4% full, meaning that all the files that I sent to the Trash (and aren't in there) are still residing somewhere on my hard drive. Where!?

How do I find and remove them all? More importantly, how do I fix this so that the Trash works like, well, like a Trash!?

And ideas out there? Thnaks in advance...

UPDATE - not a solution, tho!

I found the files (wow, the Find program woulda been a good place to start! D'oh!) in my hdb1 partition (mounted in my hda5 home directory), not sure why it there, in a hidden directory named [.Trash-1000] containing 45GB worth of trash that was never dumped. Nice to reclaim the space, but it still doesn't fix my issue of a non-working Trash bin.
