I can reproduce this), but my guess is that this is a feature, compacting
the trash will actually delete the files from disk (just like imap
delete versus imap expunge behavior).

So if you are using imap, kmail has a setting for the imap account to
"Automatically compact folders (expunges deleted messages)". Maybe there
is bug with this setting (I'm at a plain i386 unstable that hasn't been
updated for quite a while)?
