Something must've gone wrong with that delete then.

You can try, but pkg_delete may get stuck where pkg_info did.
You may be able to just delete the offending line.  Or if you
can track down the contents and delete them by hand then you may
be able to just rm -rf that directory.

You can also remove the '+CONTENTS' file and do a forced reinstall
just to be able to do a clean delete.  Might be interesting to see
if the corruption happens again.

Whatever you do, be sure to run pkgdb -F a lot.
