I haven't been able to understand your code in detail, but am I correct 
in thinking that you are compiling predicates such as d_role and d_cell 
etc. in your example, which share variables (_219 in your case), and you 
expect the compiled version of these predicates will still share the 

If so, this is a rather fundamental misunderstanding of variables in 
Prolog. Variables exists during the runtime only, and variables in your 
source are not the same as the runtime variables.

If you really want to do meta-programming using compiled/asserted 
predicates with some notion about shared variables across the 
predicates, you will probably need to have some ground representation of 
variables (such as an id number) in your predicates, which you convert 
to runtime variables.
