Disable remove from panel on the trash


Ok so I am going through some old baby pictures of my daughter over 15,000+ and she is only 3 years old.....

Here is my problem. I am moving and sorting all of these and tossing some. I have several times right clicked on the trash and by mistake clicked remove from panel. Is there anyway to hide that option for the trash? I know I have done this several times before and now its happening alto with the project I am working on. It would be nice if I could disable that option.

Kindly tell us the Desktop environment you are using ? i.e. Kde or Gnome or any other ?

Don't know ifthis would be an acceptable work-around, but when using GNOME, I just remove the trash applet from the panel and set nautilus to display the trash can on the desktop.

When you right click on the empty space on the panel , do you see something as "Lock taskbar" ?
