Description of problem:
The trashapplet icon on the GNOME panel does not automatically update when items
are added or removed to/from the Trash folder.  You have to manually double
click on the trashapplet and open up the Trash folder in order for the icon to

you delete an item, the item will disappear, but the trashapplet still indicates
that the Trash is empty.

Do you have anything suspicious in ~/.xsession-errors ?

Comment 2 Michael Elkins 2008-04-21 13:52:23 UTC
I went to check this again this morning and now I am seeing the proper behavior.
 Perhaps there was an update that required a restart of GNOME that caused the
odd behavior?  I'll reopen this bug if I see it again.
