This is incorrect, and looks like an ECLiPSe compiler bug

This is the correct behaviour -- by adding the `true', you avoid the compiler bug.

The existing ECLiPSe compiler is written in C, and contains known bugs that are difficult 
to fix. Generally, adding true near where the error occurs will provide a work around
for the problem. 

This is of course far from ideal. We are in the process of replacing this compiler with one written
in ECLiPSe, which should be easier to maintain.
