DSolve?? solution which is not a solution

I have a homogeneous differential equation for a vector
(physically speaking it is a vector potential):
a-T.Laplacian[a]==0 (1)
where T is a diagonal 3x3 matrix of diagonal elements l^2{1,1,G}
and the condition of vanishing divergence for the same vector:
Div[a]==0 (2)
The vector is written in a 2D Fourier-space (q,p), as:
a={ax[q,p,z],ay[q,p,z],az[q,p,z]} Exp[I q x+I p y] (3)
I create a system with the three components of eq.(1) and
the additional eq.(2), and employ DSolve to find a general solution.
Matemhatica (4.0 for Mac) gives me a solution, which I call "asol".
The problem is: when I verify the solution, inserting "asol"
in eq.(1), I find that the solution is not valid. In
particular, the result of the verification
asol-T.Laplacian[asol]
is a vector
{0,0,something}
which is not equal to {0,0,0} as it should be.
Instead, the verification of eq.(2) is OK:
Div[asol]==0
Somebody can help me to understand what's wrong?
I can send the notebook to anybody, if necessary.
Thank you very much
Marco
