This sounds like a libUrl bug.
I take it you're using delete with http urls. You're probably the
first person to do this as few http servers support the DELETE
command. As a result, this feature hasn't been tested thoroughly.
As a workaround, you can check for success like this:
if the result is empty or word 2 of the result is 200 then

I can't explain this last bit. But are you doing anything between the
"delete url" statement and the above that might change "the result"?
(A function call, or something.) In that case, you should probably
store the result in a variable immediately after the delete
statement. (Looking again, "contains" will probably change the result
delete url <url>
put the result into tRes
if tRes is empty or word 2 of tRes is 200 then
answer warning tRes with "OK"
