Hello,

It looks to me like it is some kind of problem in Coq or in its base libraries.

I'm reading Mathematical Components book. There is an example on page 103:

Lemma eqnP {n m : nat} : reflect (n = m) (eqn n m).
Proof.
  apply: (iffP idP).

after the apply: (iffP idP). I have the next goal

n, m : nat
  ============================
  ?Goal -> reflect (n = m) (eqn n m)

while acording to the book I should have this one:

n : nat
m : nat
===================
m = n -> eqn m n

It looks to me like system loses the information.
2 questions:
1) Is there a way to solve the goal?
2) Is this a new behavior of system or some kind of bug?

You probably have some wrong settings. It is your entire file?
