Cannot delete Virtuemart Categories

When setting up a Virtuemart shop I created some product categories for testing which I now want to delete. However I cannot delete them and get the following error:
vmError: Could not clear category products
        Product Category could not be deleted.
The Categories contain no child categories and no products.
Help!

What version of Joomla and Virtuemart are you using? And are you trying to delete the last product category or do you have other non-test categories in place? Finally do you have any modules or menus that reference that product category?

Joomla 1.5.26 ,  Virtuemart       2.0.8e, Template: Hot ecommerce.
Menu items Home and Shop pointing to VirtueMart Categories Layout (Top Level) but I temporarily changed these to an article and it didn't solve the problem.
No modules referencing any category at present.

I couldn't do it through Joomla backend so I deleted the categories through mySql successfully. Not the best solution but it will do for now.

No satisfactory answer as to solve it through Joomla or Virtuemart admin so I resorted to my own solution of deleting the tables in mySQL.
