Description Harrison A Neal 2007-05-09 17:39:56 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

When using KDE 3.5.6 release 37 with OpenSuse 10.3 Factory (latest KDE package
released for Factory), if you move a file to the Trash, and select Empty Trash
Bin, KDE prompts the user to move the Root Folder to the Trash Bin.

Comment 1 The Johnny Person 2007-05-13 10:31:30 UTC
Confirmed,  showing same behavior here on 2 different machines one running OpenSuse 10.1 & the other running 10.2  Both updated to KDe 3.5.6 "Release 85.1)
This problem has persisted through at least 3 minor updates to Kdebase/libs/desktop.
