Bug: 5.8--Recycler 35-pass=1-pass

I decided to try 5.86. But, when I specify a 35-pass wipe on the recycle bin it only does 1-pass. I often wipe recycler with a 35-pass. So, I had to reinstall 5.7.

Hi,

To clarify: I tested the 35-pass wipe of the Recycle Bin several times. And each time it resulted in a 1-pass wipe. I did not try it with a 7-pass, etc. I have reinstalled 5.7, so can't try it now. The 35-pass does work on files. Now since I have discovered that 35-pass isn't necessary, maybe I will reinstall 5.86 and see if the Recycler 7-pass works.

Thanks,
lucid
