[Balug-talk] A stuck directory problem

I have a question about a very silly situation.
There is a directory in my homedir called '.Trash'. The *directory* is
3.2 gigabytes -- it does not contain any files.... and I can't delete
it... rm -rf, rmdir, root permissions, nothing will work.
rm -rf says this:
rm: cannot remove directory `.Trash': Directory not empty.
My backup system is choking on this file because its too big, and I
can't get it to go away.
I suspect that the file was created by Mac OS/X Finder via the SMB mount
(the homedir is hosted on my Debian server), but Finder refuses to
acknowlege its trash, and rm on the Mac cannot delete it, either.
