Trash bin shows full, can't empty...

http://www.linuxforums.org – I am running Red Hat Enterprise and I've encountered a strange problem. The trash bin on my desktop appears full, full of what looks like the contents of the file system. All of the same folders etc. I cannot empty the trash because I don't have write permissions for this stuff, which makes me wonder how it got there in the first place. The .Trash folder in my home directory is empty, no hidden files or anything. I don't have root access either. (HowTos)
