iMovie won't delete rejected clips from Events

I'm editing video that I used iMovie to transfer to digital from Hi8 tapes and mini DV. To edit out unwanted video clips from Events (and save HD space), I follow the Help instructions to "send rejected clips to trash", but what happens is I get the beachball for a few minutes, and a frozen progress bar with the notation "clip-135-02-05 05;27;".

I have iMovie 8.0.6 running on an iMac.

Does anyone know why this is happening and/or how to get it to work properly?

I don't think clips were meant to be trimmed out of events, just out of projects. The purpose of events is to save the original. I could be wrong as I am new to this, but it makes sense to me.
