Yes, I sent a lot of stuff to trash while running a Konqueror window
opened with kdesu. Isn't it supposed to go to ".Trash-<n>" directories
in the directory that it was trashed from? Or, to be more precise. If
I deleted a user's file as root, where would the file have to be for it
to wind up in: "$HOME/.local/share/Trash"?
