Hi,
try to localize everything:
solnn[a_?NumericQ, xx_?NumericQ] :=
Module[{x, y, t},
Subtract @@
Through[({x, y} /.
First@NDSolve[{x'[t] == a*y[t], y'[t] == -x[t], x[0] == 1,
y[0] == 0}, {x, y}, {t, 0, Pi}])[xx]]
]
FindRoot[solnn[1, t], {t, 2}]
FindRoot[{solnn[a, t] == 0, a - 1 == 0}, {{a, 0}, {t, 2}}]
and the world is beautiful again.
Cheers
Patrick
PS: Read the error-messages carefully and you understand the bad things
that happen with your t when it's not localized.
PPS: People who use a at b.c as mail-address won't get an answer next time.
