I am trying to use send2trash on a Mac OS X system.

when I try send2trash(fn) I get the error OSError: Directory not found. This only occurs when trying to trash files on my network drive (the network folder is mapped to /Volumes/...).

It seems that when I try to manually move the file to trash in Finder, the file disappears completely and does not show up in Trash. I googled a little and found that OSX seems to lack support for trashing files on network volumes! (e.g. I wonder if this is something that can be overcome in the send2trash code?
