I was thrown by this exact thing when I first started with DW.  Error code 
'0' means "no error".

Boisy / Aaron / et al,

_Please_ consider changing this. I've raised the issue in the past.  IMHO 
it's not good interface design to use the term error unless it's part of, 
e.g. "no error...".  If the operation succeeds, best to suppress the token 
'Error[0]' completely.
