I've got a pretty scary problem. Yesterday I wanted to empty the trash but somewhere in the process it just hung up. I rebooted a few times and tried it again and again but with no result.
I then used the terminal to delete the files out of the .Trash folder manually and I could narrow down the problem to one particular file/folder that I can't delete. If I try
rm -rfv <file/foldername> it just hangs up. Even if I try to get more infos about the file/folder with
ls -l it will hang up.
I also tried to repair the volume using disk utility with no success.
