KDE tends to erase files through some higher level API's, which is why it is
generally a bad idea to erase, move or copy /very/ large lumps of
files/directory by dragging and dropping or even using the menus at times.
The command line does things the quick and dirty way and in Control Center
you will find where your trash directory is located (maybe ~/Trash or
~/Desktop/Trash by default, but I believed this was changed in SuSE 9.3
onwards). If this latency bothers you, create a simple shell script, e.g.
,----[ empty_trash.sh ]
| # /bin/sh
| rm -rf ~/Trash
make it executable:
,----[ Command ]
| chmod 700 empty_trash.sh
and put it in the desktop or whatever suits you. It's merely a workaround,
not an answer.
Hope it helps,
