It is contrived, but still possible. A (perhaps) simpler scenario is:
* have multiple SSH sessions going;
* have the correct amount of interrupts on what you are doing,
requiring you to open (a few) more SSH sessions;
* run the 'rm -rf <whatever>' you intended to run in a different SSH
Pretty much all of us that work on multiple systems have done
something like that at least once (not necessarily with 'rm').
On another track, Nautilus already has a "seatbelt" on: by default,
deletion is actually move-to-trash. Of course, one can disable it. I
wonder if this was the case for the OP.
p.s. Emmet! Glad to see (ah, read) you!
