I can't believe it ...

I can't believe it ...

The + and * operators are overloaded (UpValues) for some structure
(elements of finite field).
My NormalQ routine uses the Det (System) on a square matrix of such
elements, and EVERYTHING WORKS fine.

BUT, as soon as I try to insert NormalQ into a package:


  "NormalQ[a_?FFelemQ] calls Det ...";


(* reach this point *)
(* never there *)



The computation of Det gets endless ...
( Of course there is no shadowing of Det ... )

Could somebody explain me what is wrong ?
