Assumptions does not work in Eliminate?


Hello,

I am trying to use the $Assumptions command with the Eliminate in the 
following form:


$Assumptions = {b > 0}

Eliminate[{a/b == c, a == d}, a]



The answer I get is:

d == b c && b != 0



The b!=0 is sensless for me because I stated b>0 above.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Andreas
