I am running into a problem where the satsolver is triggering an abort

doesn't explain it:

/* dq.count < 2 cannot happen as this means that
* the rule is unit */

What does a dq.count <= 1 mean, and what does that comment mean?

"dq" is a queue containing unresolved literals. dq.count is
the number of elements on this queue. A rule is "unit" if
all literals but one are False, and the last literal is
undecided (see SAT solver theory).

All "unit" rule should already be handled in the propagate() step,
so they shouldn't turn up here.

Please change the debug level so that the output includes
SAT_DEBUG_PROPAGATE. The solver code will then dump the rule
before aborting.
