Suddently, I can't move files into the trash. Anytime I select "move to trash". It will only propose me to delete the file permanently. Althoug the trash still appears on my dock, it does not appear anymore in the finder under my favorites or any other menu. Seems to have completely disappear from the computer. I'm on OS 10.7.4
