It is not Frama-C that misses a feature, but the Jessie plugin. The message

says that set comprehensions are not supported

Not better. But if you just remove the assigns clauses, it should work 
both in Carbon and Nitro

Yes, there are, although these are far from the simplest examples to 
start with. You may quickly face difficult issues regarding memory 
separation. A recent resource regarding these issues in the context of 
Frama-C and Jessie is the forthcoming PhD thesis :

Fran?ois Bobot. Logique de s?paration et v?rification d?ductive. Th?se 
de doctorat, Universit? Paris-Sud, 2011.

For older resources but immediately available, in the context of 
Caduceus which is a predecessor of the Jessie plugin:
