Yep, I guess when you are using the remove method from the refactoring
tools, it will just make not possible to remove the method as long as
there are places where this method name (message) is used.
In that case, you can just use the non-refactoring remove tool from the
same popup menu. The menu item is "remove...(x)". When the method is
selected you can also use the [alt]+[x] shortcut.

You may found that you do not need to use the refactoring version to
remove a method, but more when you want to rename a message. In that
latter, you have to be careful to rename your message use and not ones
from other method with the same name. Hum, not sure it sounds clear.
