I have not encountered this behavior before and to be honest I delete
databases on nearly an hourly basis.

Some questions that may sounds stupid:
- Which version are you using?
- Do you have multiple server you are connected to with Futon?
- Have you tried an actual curl -X DELETE http://localhost:5984/dbname
? What's the answer you get from that?

Cheers :)
