Are all of your cards identical? If they are they may in fact be  
getting deleted but there is no obvious visual confirmation. After  
you delete the card, enter 'put number of cards' in the message box  
and see what it returns. You can also open the Application Browser in  
the Tools menu and see how many cards are listed for the stack. Also,  
if I'm not mistaken, Rev won't let you delete a card if there's only  
one left because every stack has to have at least one card.
