### Inconsistency with Groebner basis

I made a computation of Groebner basis (see below), but the result found seems inconsistent. I don't know if it is a bug or a misunderstanding.

Here is the problem (see below): the two last equations of the Groebner basis are the equations for the variables a and di respectively. Then once a and di are fixed, there are two polynomial equations for the variable v1: one is of degree 4, and the other of degree 1. - first problem: why two such polynomial equations for v1whereas the one of degree 1 is enough. - second problem: according to the equation of degree 1, the variable v1 is completely determined by a and di, but if we look to the explicit solutions below, at fixed a and di there are several possible v1. See for example the 2nd and 3rd solutions, where

a == (-0.8090169943749489 + 0.5877852522924764*I), di == -1.170820353063344


but for the second:

v1 == (0.3882502019703987 + 1.194911254909264*I)


whereas for the thrid:

v1 == (-0.2069674907352382 - 0.636980438966315*I)


Question: Can you clarify the situation? Is it a bug? a misunderstanding? If so, can you explain?
