Have you tried force-quitting Thunar via "Thunar -q"? I have noticed
that sometimes the trash service is started after Thunar (as can be
seen by an "unavailable" icon on the trash panel applet). Restarting
Thunar this way always gives me back the option to move files to trash.

BTW I’m using 1.6.1 here and haven’t noticed anything like this before
the 1.6.x release.
