Although cascade deleting is executed from Zend_Db_Table_Abstract::delete it will not delete from dependent table. While calling _cascadeDelete on dependent table it's class name is passed as parent's table. Zend_Db_Table_Abstract::delete should be:

<pre class="highlight">
    public function delete($where)
        $depTables = $this->getDependentTables();
        if (!empty($depTables)) {
            $resultSet = $this->fetchAll($where);
            if (count($resultSet) > 0 ) {
                foreach ($resultSet as $row) {
                     * Execute cascading deletes against dependent tables
                    foreach ($depTables as $tableClass) {
                        $t = self::getTableFromString($tableClass, $this);
                        $t->_cascadeDelete(get_class($this), $row->getPrimaryKey());

        $tableSpec = ($this->_schema ? $this->_schema . '.' : '') . $this->_name;
        return $this->_db->delete($tableSpec, $where);
