Hi, why does Konqueror have to count through (and seemingly look at)

before Konqueror deleted them, it laboriously counted through every 
single file in the directory. This took nearly 6 minutes! (On a 3.2 GHZ

This happens all the time with Konqueror and I have always wondered 
about it. BTW I have used KDE for over 5 years - and have used numerous

talking about.
