The only problem I have with "bin" is that also happens to be the name of the folder in Unix/Linux where all your commands are stored...DO NOT empty this "bin" or your system will lock up!

> The deleted items folder is inconsistently named and is referred to as both Wastebasket and Deleted items, Ubuntu offers to 'Empty Deleted Items' but the window is headed Wastebasket. The URL to deleted items is also trash:/// in nautilus but this is possibly a seperate issue. An effect of this can be seen in #115661 also.
