A curious dolphin - hardware related bug

I would like to repeat this error but I preferred, horrified, to eliminate the keyboard (PS/2) in question. It had a faulty cable as it seams. Now instead, that caused a very troublesome software error. Premise, I had deactivated the confirmation dialog after right click and “put to trash”. Now during this hardware trouble with the keyboard, the keys would lock, however it would still be possible to move the mouse and work with the system.
Whatever I would have opened with dolphin (or within the kmenue “open file” resulted in an automatic deletion of the file. I lost some mpg movies before I got aware what happened. Nothing really important but still, I am understanding now differently the necessity of the “delete confirmation dialog”. Have now a new Cherry keyboard (former was MS tech) with usb interface. Runs flawlessly and the error disappeared. I post it anyway out of curiosity, to know if someone else might have experienced this error, in other or similar circumstances. I think it was purely hardware related. Still…shocking. :open_mouth:

# uname -a
Linux linux-5m9f 3.1.0-1.2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Nov 3 14:45:45 UTC 2011 (187dde0) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

on a openSUSE 12.1, KDE version 4.72 and dolphin version 1.7.

AFAIK there are two levels of confirmation, move to trash and delete. Disabling move-to-trash confirmation is not a big risk as you can recover the removed files from the trash folder. Delete, however, is permanent, so confirmation is a good idea.

The fact that the system blocked because the trash was full saved in fact a lot of files. But some where not recoverable because from an external usb hdd.
