temporary text files or folders

Sometimes I create temporary text files or folders on the desktop so as not to bother. So, when I delete them, the removal of one small text file takes 5-15 seconds (!), While the HDD is constantly spinning (what can it possibly be doing, looking for or creating?), And the system itself rather slows down for that time.
Has anyone experienced this? Is there any way to speed up the deletion of files from the desktop in XFCE?

I am looking for a new place to live and I will need to come up with the money for the first month’s rent, for my current apartment rent, for the deposition (a full month’s rent, if not two!) and the money for the actual move. All in all gotta be around $5,000 and I am so clueless as how to make that happen. This site contains helpful information about payday loans, and I think this is one of the most feasible plans in my current situation. The savings I got and a loan could get me there. And yes I know loans are to be avoided, but this is a very well considered choice so please people, don’t lecture me. Any references to great lenders in WI would be very much appreciated.

Re: temporary text files or folders

Which version of Xfce and xfdesktop are you using?

On a fresh boot and login, post back the results of ~/.xsession-errors (if your distro creates one) and do the following to get xfdesktop debug info:
1. Restart xfdesktop in debug mode:

xfdesktop -Q && xfdesktop -e

2. Try deleting one of these files
3. When the file is finally deleted, post back the full output of the debug command.

Lets see if there are some hints as to what the problem may be.
