Thanks for the confirmation. Now I only need to find out how to delete a
wrong cache entry for a file that does not exist anymore, but which is
still shown in Trash, and whose trash entry cannot be deleted by
emptying the trash

With gnome-vfs, this could be done by
deleting /home/<user>/.gnome/gnome-vfs/.trash_entry_cache. There was a
bug in Launchpad for it. Now it still seems to happen, but the gnome-vfs
file is gone, and I can't find the substitute in gvfs.

Any help appreciated
