Action Type delete not working correctly in Trigger When Outlook event is added, updated, or deleted

I have a flow that adds/edits an Outlook event to a SharePoint list.  The added/updated parts work fine.

 

When I test "canceling" an event in Outlook, the flow reacts like it is an "update".

 

Any assistance on this Friday afternoon would be greatly appreciated.

Found a workaround.  

 

There is a subject field in Outlook for canceled events.

If you do a compose action, you'll see that canceled events start the subject line with "canceled".  I just included a condition that checks for cancelled, and the flow works fine.
