In that link it is menctioned that
Typically, array new will insert information adjacent to the memory allocated for an array that indicates not only the size of the block of storage but also the number of elements in the allocated array. This information is examined and acted upon by array delete when the array is deleted.
The format of this information is probably different from that of the information stored with a block of storage obtained through scalar new. If scalar delete is invoked upon storage allocated by array new, the information about size and element count—which are intended to be interpreted by an array delete—will probably be misinterpreted by the scalar delete, with undefined results. It's also possible that scalar and array allocation employ different memory pools. Use of a scalar deletion to return array storage allocated from the array pool to the scalar pool is likely to end in disaster.
