You have to press CTRL while doing right click on the last file. This
will select the last file and bring up the popup without unselecting
anything previous. This is linked to the way the gtk handler works so
there's not much that can be do about it (save write a new event
handler). You can also use the delete key, main menu entry or toolbar
button to delete all without unselecting.

Kind of a "oops" safeguard. One of the initial xffm designs had a
"trash'em" and a "delete'em" buttons instead of the checkbox and the
"yes" button. But it was much criticised and the current design ensued.
