Question for Mac users

I recently had a file in my trash that refused to delete because it said that it was in use. I force deleted it by opening the Terminal and typing "rm -r .Trash/"

That worked and removed the file, but now if I drag anything to the trash it instantly deletes it instead of letting me keep it in the trash until I delete it. How do I fix this? Is there any way to reset the Terminal? I'm using an iBook running 10.4.6.

Any help would be great. I'd call up the lovely Mac people, but my warrenty expired. :-(

Edit: FIXED. Thanks so much everyone!
