I have a workaround to this.
Select your gmail Bin folder, and then go to Mailbox / Use this mailbox for / Trash.
Provided in your Mail search settings, Trash is unticked in the "When searching all mailboxes" setting, these messages will no longer appear in your searches.

This is a real fix, not a workaround.
I'd give you a green check, but I can't figure out how.
Thanks!Mac OS X (10.7.2)

I tried this fix but it didn't work for me. I am using Gmail imap and have checked the box in the preferences "move deleted messages to the Trash mailbox" and I have selected my gmail trash mailbox and went to Mailbox / use this mailbox for / trash.
Can anybody help me out?

I did that and it's not letting me delete any messages from that account, nor is it letting me move it back. Can you help?

Having this problem, big-time, and the fix won't work — the "trash" option (indeed, all four options) is greyed out. Any thoughts?

I have exactly the same. All the options under Mailbox > Use this... are greyed out. Using Maverics here btw.
