I used Undo Move to Trash now. ;-)

There is a problem with this solution. I created using this technique 
(before I wrote the mail), but in the context menu of the newly created 
desktop file the "Empty Trash" entry does not appear. This is normal as 
the created .desktop file contains only:
[Desktop Entry]

as opposed to:
[Desktop Action EmptyTrash]
Exec=ktrash --empty
Name=Empty Trash

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Contains removed files

That'd not solve the problem described above, just if the Create New 
Link autodetects the "trash:/" case. Or if you add a separate entry 
(under Link to Device?) for the Trash, but this may be just too much.

As a suggestion, it would be nice to have a trash entry in Konqueror 
(yes, I know we have trash:/) in the Services tab. This could be also 
dropped to the desktop to create a new trash icon.
