osX empty trash error -8003

Error -8003 occurred when I try to empty the Trash bin on Snow leopard.

I 'mv' all file from .Trash/ to tmp/. I then 'rm -rf [a-Z]*', and deleted a lot of files. This enable me to find that files like "-BamBth.nwk" is the problem. The '-' at the start of these filenames were treated like switched. I then manually renamed all these files, and it solved the problem.
