kde trash icon

I'm using Slackware 9.1, kde 3.2.2 and kernel 2.6.6. The kde trash icon shows always that the trash is full, it never changes its state. How can I configure/change this ?

right click on the trash, and you can change the icons showing
if it is full or empty...........FYI, I don't keep the trash on the desktop!!
you can change it's $PATH, I changed the $PATH and put trash in the
users ~/<home> directory.........

nope, I can't see nay of these options there. When I right click I have: open, Empty TrashBin and Properties. Open: just opens then Trash, Empty TrashBin dosen't do anything when clicked, and properties has only two tabs: General (occupied space etc.) and Permissions. So there's no way I can chance the icon. Isn't there a config file somewhere, that I can edit ?
