Delete files from usb flash / Fedora 15

When i delete files from USB, they don't go to wastebasket. Files are moved to .Trash-uid directory on USB flash. How can i fix this.

Offtopic: With Gnome 3 i have feeling that my hands are tied.

Right click on the .Trash directory and "move to trash" and it should give you the option to delete it. I'm sure as G3 matures some of the "Trash" functionality may return, maybe.

Problem is that files are actually moved to Trash directory. Desktop wastebasket is empty.
I should wait for update. Gnome 3 seems that is not complety finished

It seems that I am not seeing this behaviour on my system. It is weird that the files are not visible on the main wastebasket only for flash/usb sticks. My external USB disks work as expected, with the deleted files appearing on the wastebasket. Also, I do not see an empty the wastebasket dialogue on my system. I am running fc16 .
