Hi, Divine fails to correctly verify following piece of code and the enclosed patch fixes the issue.

#include <assert.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(void)
    errno = 0;

    char *ptr = calloc(1, sizeof(char));
    if (ptr == NULL) {
        assert(errno == ENOMEM);
        return EXIT_SUCCESS;

    assert(*ptr == 0);
    assert(errno == 0);
