It’s clearly ignoring the in argument, because attempting to delete the card at all when the send in time is in a running script fails to delete the card, but deleting the card from the message box works fine. If I were you, I’d file a bug report using this stack as an example,

Um: well, frankly, that stack is a load of simplistic 'cod' that I ran 
up because a load of kids I teach wanted something very quickly.
It is clunky; and as kids add words the thing is going to bloat at such 
a rate it is going to stuff-up their hard drives like nobody's business.
However, it will keep the kids off my back while I get on with something 
rather better.

I have a view to work on something that will lever a tab delimited text 
file, or, more simply, a simple listField.

I wonder what you mean by "Broke" ?  That was put together with 6.7.2 - 
do you mean that 'send in time'
was working better in earlier versions?
