IMHO this bug shoud have a higher priority: a lot of people use this great tool for freeing space on disks, but with this issue one of the biggest funcionality of the program is broken!
Especially if a non-experienced user uses this tool, it may be very hard to discover that "deleted" files are in ~/.Trash and not in Trash:// 

Many thanks for your work.
