When i try to solve this differential equation with the command:

In[1]:= DSolve[f'[t] == Sign[p2 Exp[F2 t] - p1 Exp[F1 t] + p], f[t], t]

where p, p1, p2, F1 and F2 are constants i get the answer

F1 t       F2 t
(p - E     p1 + E     p2) (-K\$31 + t)
Out[1]= {{f[t] -> ------------------------------------- + C[1]}}
F1 t       F2 t    2
Sqrt[(p - E     p1 + E     p2) ]

what the hell is K\$31? I have tried to find out with google or
the mathematica 5 online docs but have found nothing.

can someone enlighten me?
