Cannot empty trash because item is in use
Authored by: teacy123 on Jan 23, '11 05:12:12AM

I found that the main reason in my use was the calculation of thumbnails (e.g. Flip4Mac calculating a thumbnail for a large WMV file in the trash).
Not looking at the trash but using the "Empty Trash" context menu on the Dock prevents most occurrences for me.
