Using MySQL 5.0.1 snapshot as DB.

Create a View in the Query Browser 
Check it exists
Right click on name of 'table' in Schemata
Select Drop
Get error. 
View still present.

How to repeat:
Create a View 
From some existing table use
    CREATE VIEW testview AS SELECT * FROM existingtable

See it exists
     SELECT * FROM textview

Drop it through the GUI 
right click on the Schemata
Get a menu ( Edit Table, Create New Table, Drop Table, Refresh Schemata List)
Select Drop Table
Get Dialog saying "am I sure" click OK
Get dialog error "Error While Executing Query"
"DROP TABLE 'databasename'.'testview'"
"MySQL Error Nr. 1051"
"Unknown table 'testview'"

OK button pressed,

View still exists

Suggested fix:
GUI needs some sense of what has been right clicked on. The syntax for dropping Views is slight different to tables (DROP VIEW, not DROP TABLE) so needs to build query appropriate to underlying type.

At the moment, QB and MA only support the features from MySQL 4.1. We are working to integrate the new 5.0.1 features as soon as possible. But since it is likely that some of these features are going to change it is a litte bit tricky. Still expect the missing 5.0.1 features in on of the next releases.
