[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#677725: thunar: deleting files on removable media uses a trash with no command to empty it

Package: thunar
Version: 1.2.3-3
Severity: normal

Managing files on removable media is quite awkward: when files are
deleted from thunar, they are just moved to a .Trash-$UID at the root
of the media, similarly to what's done in the user's home dir.  But in
this case, there is no per-removable trash icon to see what's trashed
and purge it.  There is no "empty removable media's trash" command in
context menu either.

Heavy user of Thunar, have to use a workaround, like using
cut-and-paste to their home/desktop/whatever, and use "delete file"
from there - quite awkward, really :}
