Deleting forms in aggregate

Hi,
We are encountering a problem when deleting forms
The forms that are exported (directly) through ODK Build cannot be deleted
from the list of forms (exported by multiple users - i.e. different email
addresses).
However, it is not a problem if we had exported by downloading xml file and
uploaded it to the ODK Aggregate.
Please let us know if this is a fixable bug or we are simply bugging you
with a silly question.
Thank you.

When you choose to delete a form, first the form submissions are deleted and
only then is the form definition removed.

If you have many submissions, it can take quite some time to delete them,
causing it to appear as if the form deletion request is being ignored
because the form continues to show in the list of forms.

We made Aggregate 1.0 smarter about hiding forms marked for deletion, but it
still follows the same delete-then-remove process.

If your forms don't have a lot of submissions, look at the logs for your
appengine instance (via https://appengine.google.com/ , choose your
application, then click the "Logs" item on the left sidebar). There may be
an error preventing the deletion from completing.
