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
