I don't see anything wrong with the specification. In fact, if you 
replace field M.x1 by some float variable Mx1, it will go through.

Gappa can prove the arithmetic properties, but it does not support field 
accesses. SMT solvers support them, but they cannot cope with the 
arithmetic. Thus you are stuck, since none of the tools is powerful enough.
