Ahh. After much printing of debugging statements and wrapping things
in eval throughout the call,  I found the cause. I'm so fired .   Its
embarassing. :)
 I had installed the  SVN version of Maypole which changed its
"delete"  method in the model class. I had forgotten that Maypole
Model CDBI has a delete method.  That pesky"delete" method was redone
and failed on  deletes made from a cascade but worked when there was
no cascade.

I always forget about those poorly named methods. I dont even know how
to call Class::DBI 's delete. :)  What would that be
$self->SUPER->SUPER::delete?  I'm cutting that method out of my copy 

Thanks Perrin.
