I've found this feature confusing the first time I saw it. IMHO, the Trash 
folder should simply not be in the Desktop. I absolutely agree with Desktop 
being in my home folder, but I don't think creating "home(/Desktop)" on 
every BFS volume makes *any* sense. And I think it only happens because of 
Trash being in home/Desktop. I would greatly appreciate if this got 
changed. It will all make even less sense when really switching to 
multi-user. I think Trash should be a hidden folder in the root of every 
BFS volume, and each user should have a subfolder in Trash, with Tracker 
completely ignoring the Trash folders of other users.

Best regards,
