Sorry if I'm way off on this but, I just jumped in here.
1. If you just want to update a Finder window, you can do that with
the Applescript "update folder pathToFolder". I've had to use this to
refresh the contents of open Finder windows. I don't do that any more
2. If you want to delete something that's already in Trash (seems
weird), you can use the shell command: rm /Users/$USER/.Trash/filename
