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.
