Graphical file manager?  That isn't the *nix way of doing things.  :)

And the -f in the rm command it to stop the "Confirm delete?" questions.
   My rm is set to confirm all deletes using alias.


How exactly did you do this? I got bit by this bug once in my Linux
life, would prefer it never happens again.

Bug?? What bug?? I see no bug here. rm is working as it is supposed to.

I did not see the OP but what is described here is NOTABUG.
