Deleting rows from a table does not work as expected.

The table contains an image column for which I want to delete all rows that have a NULL value for this column. This works fine until I have a foreign key referencing the table, at which point any rows that have had their image column UPDATED to be NULL fail to be deleted.

This problem occurs on at least SQL 2005 Express Edition and SQL 2005 Developer Edition.

The issue is fixed in SQL Server 2008. It will also be fixed in the next SQL Server 2005 service pack. Thanks for helping us identify this! -Eric
