[Users] Trash not being emptied on exit

After setting the "Ask before emptying trash" button and testing the trash was
emptied.  I then un-checked that button and moved several hundred old messages
into the trash (MH) folder and that also worked.  I'm wondering if under
openSUSE, when I shut down the computer for the night, if CM goes into a
hibernation mode instead of actually shutting down.  I'll have to play with
that idea a bit and post the results.

Thanks, Tom
