Q??: Solve::"eqf": "False is not a well-formed equation


Hello all.

I have this strange behaviour of MMA that bugs me:

Solve[{0,0}==x {0.,1.}+{1.,1.}]

gives

Solve::eqf : False is not a well-formed equation.

But...

Solve[False]

gives (normal)

{}

and

Solve[{0,0}==x{0,1}+{1,1}]

gives (!!!)

{}

Can someone clear this point for me? Is there any way to get a {} in the
first case?

See ya.
