Dan, look for a file in your home directory called .Trash or similar. I
haven't run GNOME in a long time, but that's usually where the files
are. It's possible the icon shows it as being non-empty, but it really
is. I've seen that in GNOME a could of times. Sometimes restarting the
session fixes that.
Also, I tend to enable the 'Delete' option for the menu so I can just
remove files I don't need simply because the Empty Trash option doesn't
always work (in GNOME or KDE) in my experience.
As for the second question, I am afraid I can't help you. Have you
tried right clicking and seeing what options come up? I've not seen
that on a GNOME desktop before, so I don't know what that is.
