Why does emptying the trash in Snow Leopard take so long?

Why does emptying the trash in Snow Leopard take so long?

Since installing Mac OS X 10.6, whenever I empty the trash, it takes about 50x as long as it used to under 10.5. I just emptied about 100 files (totaling 50 megs / all local files), and it was about 20 minutes.

"Go to Finder » Preferences, and in the Advanced tab uncheck Empty Trash Securely.

The default did not change for me, but for some unknown reason it did change for some people."
