This is a spec. bug. Immediately before line10 of the algorithm there should be a line that says:
Call the [[Put]] internal method of A with arguments "length", actualDeleteCount, and true.
The ES3 spec. has the equivalent of the above line. It was apparently inadvertently dropped in the ES5 spec.
Chrome's behavior (and also Firefox, I haven't checked others) matches the intended ES3 behavior.
I'll file a bug against the the ES5 spec.
Chrome is correct
