This might make it work in most case:

If .Trash/$uid/ and .Trash_$uid dont exist or is not owned by You, check 
alla .Trash/*/ and .Trash_$uid if You own any, then use that (possably 
renaming it if possably).

This will also help if a sysadm change users uids and run a script to 
corect the ownership off all files (to synk userdatabases betwen 
machines or whatewer).
