revDeleteFolder: nothing in Trash on MacIntel?

Hello group,

According to the docs, the revDeleteFolder command is supposed to put 
the deleted folder in the Trash:

      "On Mac OS and OS X systems, the revDeleteFolder command places 
the folder in the Trash."

However, on my iMac Core 2 Duo, the folder simply disappears. Nothing 
shows in the Trash. This is great for the application that I am 
working on. The script creates a folder for downloading individual 
pages of a patent. Those pages are then combined into a single PDF 
files that is saved in the parent folder. Then the script uses 
revDeleteFolder to get rid of the folder contaiing the downloaded 
pages. For multiple patents, the user will not end up with a Trash 
full of folders.

So I am wondering if anyone else has seen this. Also, is the command 
working as descrbed in the docs on a PowerPC Mac, or are the docs 
simply incorrect?
