Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-applets (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed


I feel like when you click a second time on the Trash applet, it should
close the Trash window instead of opening a second one. Who needs two
Trash windows? Personnaly, this is really not the action I was expecting
when clicking on the Trash applet a second time.

Typically what I want to do with this applet is to look at what's inside
the Trash and/or empty it.

To look at it, i click on the icon, and it opens the Trash window. I
don't even move my pointer from the icon when i look at what's inside
the Trash. When I've seen what's inside, I intuitively click again on
this icon, expecting this action to close the window.

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like this behavior would be more
