[wp-hackers] Delete Row - Refreshes Page but not DB

Well the thing is that WordPress takes care of some extra stuff when an
attachment is deleted - usually if it's an image, WordPress will also
delete all of the sizes for that image, etc.

I'm looking into the core code for wp_delete_attachment and I can't seem to
find anything that would not let an attachment to be deleted, based on the
current user's role(it also doesn't make a lot of sense to have such a
restriction for a core method - usually restrictions occur before a core
method is ran - at the time of parsing a request for instance).

What is the failure alert that you're getting? Does wp_delete_attachment
just return false?
