Empty trash without Preview blocking a file
Authored by: jelockwood on Jan 16, '09 08:17:56AM

This problem also affects QuickTime Player and is down to a bug. I reported this bug to Apple back in the Mac OS X 10.4.x era and they confirmed its existence but certainly as of 10.4.11 with the latest QuickTime etc. it still occurs.

I have not yet tried reproducing it under 10.5 so I don't know if it is fixed there but judging from the posting of this hint I would guess the answer is no. [It does not occur 100% of the time, but if you have Preview/Player running long enough and open/close enough files it will rear its ugly head]

While this is a minor bug, it is disappointing Apple have taken so very long to still not yet fix it. I thought only Microsoft were guilty of that. ;)
