Re: [isabelle] "apply auto" transforms provable statement to something false?

I havenât tried your particular example, but other examples are very easy to generate. Suppose you want to prove âx. x=0 & x=1.Then you can easily give yourself the two subgoals ?x=0 and ?x=1. Then auto will solve one and replace the other by False.
