What happens if another file with the same name is already in the Trash?
Authored by: marbx on Feb 29, '08 03:47:11PM

The function should work very similar to Finder -- if another file with the same name exists, it will append the current time to make the name unique. Say you delete "newfile," then delete a second file named "newfile" in a different folder. When you go to look in the Trash, you'll see "newfile" and "newfile 12-10-00" if you deleted the second "newfile" at ten minutes past noon.
