I'm sure that this aspect of Nautilus could use some testing and improvement. It seems that there are some trash edge cases that don't work well.

I think the desired approach is that if there's no way to make a trash folder, Nautilus should tell you that it can't trash and offer to delete instead. I'm not sure what it should do about a mount point with a trash folder that gives you permission enough to see the trash, but not enough to empty the trash.

A related feature is that if you are copying to a destination that has a non-empty trash folder, it should offer to empty the trash if that will free enough space to make the copy successful (not 100% accurate, but based on adding up sizes).
