F11 Trash Not Emptying

	Sometimes it tells me that certain things can't be removed (Error 
removing file: Permission denied) -- even though their owner is my userid 
-- and sometimes it just does nothing. 

	Ir I right click on one of the items in the trash, then on 
Properties, then on Permissions, it tells me I own it; but if I try to 
change group folder access, it says 'Sorry, could not change the 
permissions of "": Operation not supported by backend.'

	This happened once before, with F10 iirc, and that time I managed 
to get to the trash as root and deleted the stuff; but alas!, I can 
neither recall nor reconstruct how I did it. As root at /home/btth, if I 
do ls|grep Trash, I get no hits. Similarly at /home/btth/Desktop.

	If I click on it, click file, then Open Location, it tells me 
"trash:///" -- but I can't cd to it. (Open Parent is grayed out.)

I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
