    Greetings.

    First of all, I'd like to say thank you for the very useful plugin.

    Secondly, there is an issue if there are multiple duplicates of the same post.

    For example, let's say you have a script that posts from an RSS feed and it automatically posts the same article 11 times.

    You run the plugin, and it picks up the 11 posts, if you hit 'delete old posts' the log will look like this:

    Deleted: 9195
    Deleted: 9195
    Deleting 9195 failed.
    Deleting 9195 failed.
    Deleting 9195 failed.
    Deleting 9195 failed.
    Deleting 9195 failed.
    Deleting 9195 failed.
    Deleting 9195 failed.
    Deleting 9195 failed.

    Then, when you look in the trash posts under 'all posts' none of the posts will be there, they appear to have been permanently deleted.

    I'd speculate that the first use of the delete function moves the post to trash, the second deletes forever and after that it starts throwing errors.

    I hope this information helps!
