[Frama-c-discuss] Issue with modulo over unsigned int

I have following code:
//@ ensures \result > 0 && \result < 4294967295;
unsigned int f(void)
  return 10;

void main(void)
  unsigned int a, b, r;

  a = f();
  b = f();
  //@ assert a > 0 && b > 0;
  r = a % b;
  //@ assert r < b;

With Alt-Ergo, I cannot prove "assert r < b" while this property seems
obvious to me as "r = a % b".

Is this a limitation of Alt-Ergo (Alt-Ergo does not know about modulo
mathematical properties) or am I missing something (e.g. Frama-C works
on mathematical integers which are different from unsigned int)?
