Hi,

It is hard to understand what "script" wants to tell us.
"less" would have been more useful for our purpose of displaying output
and navigating in it.


I couldn't figure out how to post a useful segment. I suspect some of my confusion revolves around not understanding "2>&1".

We need to apply clear classic commands:

   cd /home/richard/.local/share/Trash/expunged/1449727740

   find . -exec ls -ld '{}' ';' >/tmp/weird_tree.txt 2>&1

This will create a file named /tmp/weird_tree.txt with the output of
"ls -ld" of each file underneath "1449727740".

Please upload this file somewhere, so that its lines do not get hacked
into pieces or abbreviated. Or send it as attachment to my mail address.

I have run that if you need it.
I think I have a more compact view of that information.
I ran:
  tree -adRA -L 8 /home/richard/.local/share/Trash/expunged/1449727740/
The output was:

/home/richard/.local/share/Trash/expunged/1449727740/
