[Frama-c-discuss] about slicing

I am working program slicing with frama-c. I compile and install
frama-c-Neon-20140301.  When I test some toy applications in the
frama-c-Neon-20140301/tests/slicing, I find some problem. for example, such
as the bts1445.i, the result log is

void main(void)

It seems that I do not get correct slice for main function.

I try to slice it with
frama-c -slice-calls main bts1445.i -then-on "Slicing export" -print
It is the same result.

The source code for bts1445.i is
/*  run.config
OPT: -check -slice-calls main -then-on "Slicing export" -print
OPT: -check -slice-calls f -main f -then-on "Slicing export" -print
int x = 0;

int main() {
  return x + 1;

int f() {
  return x + 1;

I think that a right slice is

int x = 0;

int main() {
  return x + 1;

Why is there the problem? There is any method to solve it?
