[Frama-c-discuss] Unable to prove the example code in ACSL documentation

logic and ghost are two very different things: logic introduces a
logic constant, which is immutable by definition (there is no
execution of anything in the pure, logical world), while ghost
declares a C global variable, which is treated as any other global and
in particular might be modified during the execution of the program
(despite its const qualifier, since as previously mentionned you're
always only a cast away from being able to modify a const variable).
