    Trash Bin
    Before I installed Snow Leopard, my Trash Bin would display how many items were being trashed. If I only put in 1 item, then when I empty it, it would show 1 item being trashed.

    Now that I've installed Snow Leopard, I can put only ONE item in the Trash Bin but when I empty it, it will sometimes show 2, 3 or even 4 items being trashed. Why is that? TIA.

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    depends on what you've trashed really, this was true before Snow Leopard as well. For instance, applications are really more than a single file.. it's a package. In your finder it's viewed as a single file (unless you select show package contents), but in the trash it's always been listed as the full # of files. Is this the sort of thing you've been tossing?

    This should help explain what an app (application bundle) comprises.
