    Default can't put files in trash w/o immediately deleting them

    I find that i cannot drag anything into the trash without getting a
    window that says something like, "if this goes into the trash it will be
    immediately deleted, do you want to continue?" If you chose yes, the
    file is immediately deleted. the same thing happens if you highlight a
    file and then chose "move to trash." If I continue the file is
    immediately deleted. In other words, I can't put anything in the trash
    and then change my mind and take it out later, i.e. before emptying the
    trash. Has anyone ever had this problem? i tried running disk utilities
    to repair disk permissions, that didn't work. I reinstalled my operating
    system, 10.2, that didn't work either. I still have this issue. Any help
    would be appreciated.

    thanks,

    That happens if the file is on a remote drive. I don't know if it
    happens at other times.
