Undesirable change in behavior in Delete from disk in LR 13

I'm currently on MacOS Sonoma 14.5.

I noticed this change in LR Classic behavior recently (last 1 or 2 months), probably starting around LR 13.2.

I've been on MacOS Sonoma for much longer than this change in behavior. There have been no other configuration changes on my Mac. The disk where I store my photos is an attached SSD, and that disk is not synced to iCloud.

 

When I am in the Loupe view, and select one (or more) photo and hit the "delete" button, a dialog box appears asking whether I want to delete from Lightroom or Delete from disk. On selecting "Delete from Disk", I get another box that says "... these files could not be moved to the Trash". This is new behavior.

 

On selecting "Permanently Delete Files", the files get deleted and do not show up in my Mac Trash. This is new behavior, and undesirable. The deleted photos used to be moved to the Trash.

 

After the files get deleted, the Loupe View does not update. The preview still shows the deleted photo, but in the scrollable gallery at the bottom under the Preview window, no photos are selected. This is also new behavior, and very confusing. Used to be that the selection would automatically move to a neighboring photo and the Preview screen would get updated.

This is a known issue for some people, and has been discussed here in length. The problem is that it is difficult to reproduce and so for Adobe to fix. It can appear spontaneously, but also disappear again spontaneously. Personally I had this problem for about two weeks at the beginning of this year, and then it solved itself again and hasn't returned.
