Public bug reported:
Deleting files on the internal drive moves file into Trash can.
The Trash icon changes (buldge) indicating files to be expunged.
On external HDs this is not the case.
Files get moved to the Trash folder but the icon does not change and the menu
item to empty trash is inactive.
Thus, deleted files on external drives cannot be deleted via the GUI.
Deleting from command file (in the .Trash folder) is possible and currently the
only way to delete files on external HDs
