delete_option() and update_option() returning false

I know that when delete_option() or update_option() fail to perform their respective database interactions, they return false. Does anyone know why they wouldn’t be able to perform these actions?

It’s only for specific options. Most options will work, however, a few options just seem to “die”. They’ll work fine for a while, then just stop working. Any ideas?
