Can't delete DBF field from ArcMap 10 table view window

If I try to delete a field from either a shapefile or standalone .dbf table using the table view window (right click on field heading > delete) nothing happens. All other functions (e.g. add field, field calculator) work fine. I've tried this with several tables on different computers with the same result. Geodatabase tables function as expected. The work around is to delete the field from the properties window in Catalog.

Anyone else seen this?
