Right click the recycle bin, in properties you will see check boxes, one says allot a certain amount of space for the recycle bin, the other says dont move files into the recycle bin, delete them immediately. I bet you have the second one checked.

If the total file size of data being deleted is greater then the amount allocated to the recycle bin, it will empty the contents, although it's usual to notify you that the contents won't fit. So it's more likely like hunter said, it's set to auto empty.
