I'm sorry I can't really help you with this one (the two ECLiPSe team
members best able to deal with this are on holidays at the moment).

Which version of Windows are you using?  And is there anybody else
experiencing the same problem?  Please let us know --- it's hard to fix it
unless we get enough information to be able to reproduce the problem here.

This problem has been fixed in 5.2, due to be released soon.  If you can't
wait for the release, you can try downloading a pre-release version from the
web site (the "Dev" subdirectory).  But be warned there are some changes
which will affect what you're trying to do (in particular, you will need to
use `type(float)' rather than `type(real)') --- these will be detailed in
the release notes when 5.2 is released, but are not available yet.
