If one of the items you were deleting was an application, then it'll register as multiple items when deleting, as applications are usually application "packages," or folders with support files pretending to be an application. In Windows, support files are scattered throughout the OS, a .dll here, a registry entry there... finding them can be a real chore if you have to manually remove an application. On Macs, the application package keeps all required support files inside the package, so when you toss the app, you toss it's support files as well.
