JUnit failure is unrelated.

> Delete.java contains the following comment:
> {noformat}
> // TODO: if the user wants the trash to be used but there is any
> // problem (ie. creating the trash dir, moving the item to be deleted,
> // etc), then the path will just be deleted because moveToTrash returns
> // false and it falls thru to fs.delete.  this doesn't seem right
> {noformat}
> If Trash#moveToAppropriateTrash returns false FsShell will delete the path even if skipTrash
is not enabled. The comment isn't quite right as some of these failure scenarios result in
exceptions not a false return value, and in the case of an exception we don't unconditionally
delete the path. TrashPolicy#moveToTrash states that it only returns false if the item is
already in the trash or trash is disabled, and the expected behavior for these cases is to
just delete the path. However TrashPolicyDefault#moveToTrash also returns false if there's
a problem creating the trash directory, so for this case I think we should throw an exception
rather than return false (and delete the path bypassing trash).
> I also question the behavior of just deleting when the item is already in the trash as
it may have changed since previously put in the trash and not been checkpointed yet. Seems
like in this case we should move it to trash but with a file name suffix.
