On Windows with QGIS 2.10 or 2.12 (2.8?) there is a big bug when we delete a feature. The data associated with this object is not deleted from the .shp file.

1) Create a new Shapefile (ponct).
2) Create 3 points
3) Delete the 2th point.

The .dbf contains 2 rows (it's ok) but the file "*.shp" is strictly the same as before the deletion.
'ogrinfo -ro -so -al test_qgis.shp' say : "Feature Count: 3"
After a "save as" on this layer, the file becomes good, we have 2 features in the .shp.

On linux and QGIS 2.12.0, there is no problem.
