    OMAPI implements a "split" database model. There are local objects and
objects in the server. When you are creating a server object, you build it
locally and then issue the "create" command. That creates the server object
and links the two together.

    When you are deleting a server object you need to build the local
object, link it to the existing server object with an "open" command.
Then you can issue the "remove".

    So, in short, insert an "open" before your "remove" and all should
be well.
