"unsat" is printed as the result of (check)

"Logical context is inconsistent. Use (reset) to reset." is printed as
an error message when you try to do something that cannot be done in an
inconsistent context. Examples: more (assert ...) or (check) or (push)...

Sometimes, Yices can determine that an assertion contradicts
whatever has been asserted before. It will then print "unsat"
after the assertion, and before (check).

Here's a simple example:

(define a::int)
(assert (> a 0))
(assert (not (> a 0))
--> unsat
--> Logical context is inconsistent.
