DeleteField_management works but kills ArcCatalog

The final action in a script deletes intermediate fields that are no longer needed using the last line below.  The fields are deleted, the script concludes, and ArcCatalog immediately crashes.  If I comment out the DeleteField line, ArcCatalog does not crash but, of course, the fields are not deleted.

I'm using ArcGIS 10 SP2 and a personal (.mdb) geodatabase.  Any insights would be appreciated.

gp.DeleteField_management("Route_StartView", ["BegX", "BegY", "EndX", "EndY"])
