Tracker preferences / Ask before delete does not work

Tracker does not show conformation dialog for moving files to trash or emptying trash.
In Tracker Preferences / Trash there is a checked check box "Ask before delete", but no asking is done.
I would also suggest following usability improvements:
"Don't move files to trash" checkbox does not inform the user what is the alternative. Using radio buttons and spelling out the alternative would be better. Like this:
---When files are moved to trash------------- | | (*) Keep files in Trashcan. | ( ) Delete files permanently.
This way the setting is more conceptually compatible with Tracker's "Move to trash" command, and unwise setting sounds bad. :)
It is unclear if "Ask before delete" means getting confirmation dialog before moving item into trash or when trashcan is emptied. I would suggest having a separate checkbox for both, so that experts are free to shoot themselves in the foot and common people do not screw up when accidentally pressing "Delete" key. Like so:
--Ask before... ------------------------ | | [x] moving files into trash. | [x] deleting files permanently.
