file can't be emptied from the trash


G5 tower 1.8, 768 RAM, running TIger server 10.4

There is an item in the trash that can't be deleted. When we try it says it is in use, but curiously it's a folder not a file.

Any ideas as to how we can get rid of it? We have experienced poblems with our server in recent days and although we are not totally sure that this file is the problem, we would like to be able to get rid off it.


PS Any answers, please bear in mind I am a relatively newbie when it comes to OS X issues, especially servers (I was fine in the days of OS9!) so any answers please go easy on me! Thanks.
Very useful bit of code.
I too have had an annoying folder sat on my desktop for months.
It has now dissapered.
