I'd hazard that it is a bug since I'm not sure when a seg fault is really
desired, but maybe that's just me ;-)

But note that this is an error of usage. You shouldn't be trying to delete a
part of an array. You can delete the array but here you appear to be trying
to delete a nan value. Arrays don't work like lists in this regard. What are
you trying to do?
