I don't know if this is a new problem, but it was potentially dangerous in my case.
I have a lot of log files with a specific extension in a folder mixed with a lot of other files. For examples sake, lets say .storage is the extension.
The folder that all of those files are in is also called Storage.
Well, I did a Finder search in the folder "Storage" for all the files in that folder with the .storage extension that I wanted to delete, and the top level folder...
