I have tried repeatedly to empty the trash on a Mountain Lion MacPro (10.8.2).  Followed instructions to move files to terminal window, etc., using chflags -R nouchg, but the command, after pulling in 2600+ filenames by the drag/drop method suggested still failed.  I tried removing the flags from a subset of the files.  This time the command came back without an error, but I had the same result trying to delete, including when I said only to delete unflagged items.  Any suggestions?  There must be a better answer than going back to the install disk.
