The Trash icon on my Dock shows the Trash containing files. I tried right-clicking and
Empty Trash, but it still shows files there.
When I open the Trash folder in Finder, I can see several files still there.
I tried manually emptying the Trash with
rm ~/.Trash/*, but that doesn't work. In fact,
ls ~/.Trash/ shows the folder being empty!
Force Quitting Finder, but that didn't help either.
I'm sure rebooting would fix the problem, but I'd prefer a solution that didn't require rebooting.
