OK, this is what I thought: these hypotheses refer to the
initial state of the function. If you don't modify your strings (and
Jessie is able to notice that), they may still be useful. Otherwise,
you might notice that the first argument of valid__string_w (which
intuitively correspond to the memory) is not the same as what you
have in the goal, so that the hypothesis alone can't tell anything
about the current state. You need additional properties that reflect the
various affectations that are made during the execution of the
function, and, in the case of loops, this means loop invariants.

Best regards,
E tutto per oggi, a la prossima volta.
