Something weird just started happening with my OS X 10.5.8. I can't move any of my desktop icons around and when I move something to the Trash, it asks if I want to delte it immedately (as opposed to having it sit in the Trash).

Anyone know what's going on? I was close to running out of HD space, but have 1GB left now.
