I can reproduce the results above but:

Version 6.1development #125 (x86_64_macosx), Tue Oct  9 17:16 2012
...
[eclipse 28]: create_module(n, [], []).

Yes (0.00s cpu)
[eclipse 29]: assert(bar(99)) @ n.

Yes (0.00s cpu)
[eclipse 30]: call(bar(X)) @ n.
calling an undefined procedure true in module n
Abort

From the manual:

   create_module(Module) :-
       create_module(Module, [], eclipse_language).

Thus, it seems my mistake was to omit the "eclipse_language" in the imports argument.

Thanks for your help. Cheers,

Paulo
