```Hi,

inside a program I need to solve this linear equation in terms of p1.
However something odds happens. Sometimes the solution is computed and
sometimes the result is empty [I mean no output...]. Is this a bug of the
solve command or am I doing something wrong? The problem is robust to:
changing name to the variables and other makeups..

Thank you very much,

David

ps: Sorry for the stupid way in which I copied the command...
