deleteDef not deleting??

	fn removeUnusedDefs =
		for x in sceneDefs where do
			try(custAttributes.deleteDef x)catch(print

Simple enough function, check to see if the def exists and try and delete it. getOwner returns undefined when I check it as well. The def has been assigned to a modifier in the scene and then Max has been reset. At that time I try and do a clean up of unused defs and it will not remove it.

Here is a simple test script. Am I getting rusty from all the modeling that I have been doing as of late? Why does this error?

addModifier t ah
def=attributes test
custAttributes.add ah def
resetMaxFile #noPrompt

--Now try and get rid of it. 
testDefs=for x in defs where collect x 

testInstances=for x in testDefs collect custAttributes.getDefInstances x
for x in testInstances do print (custAttributes.getOwner x[1])
for x in testDefs do custAttributes.deleteDef x

I've had my share of issues with this function too; maybe this is helpful to you in some way:
