I have had this phenomenon happen lately...I throw something in the trash and the can appears empty. I can't even choose Empty Trash when I right click on it.

It's only when I open the trash and there are all sorts of items in there. Then I can empty the trash. It's weird...cause now it shows trash in the can. I'm not sure what causes the empty can...

Look at this screenshot

Gotta love Mavericks. Just another brick in the wall.

Sheesh.

We had a Lion/Mountain Lion Mac Pro at the office that had that issue. It had something to do with multiple user accounts or Fast User Switching turned on. When we deleted the extra user account, the problem went away. Unfortunately, we needed to have multi-user setup. The problem finally went away when we upgraded to Mavericks - but we still don't know what caused the issue.
