    Did any of the items trashed come from any sort of a external storage device (USB, etc.)? If that's the situation one thing you can do is to empty the trash with that drive mounted.

    There's an already reported LP bug: Bug #1076121. If you are experiencing the same behavior, you can click on the green line "This bug affects ? users. Does it affect you?" -> "Yes, it affects me too."
