Deleting tracks from within Rhythmbox

I was having trouble removing tracks in Rhythmbox (right-click “Move to trash”). Running the application with debugging enabled didn’t do too much help, but the many bug reports of similar problems did.

I have my music stored on a separate EXT4 partition rather than the commonly reported NTFS, so the fix was as simple as creating a .trash-{uid} directory in the root of the mounted partition with the correct ownership and permissions, of course.
