Assume you have the ideal I= <xy^2, x^2y> in the ring K[x,y].
When you compute I=std(I), the attribute "IsSB" of the ideal I will be set to 1. (You can check it executing "attrib(I);")
Otherwise, even is it is a standard basis, you will get such warning.
The right solution would be to gather monomials you need in the ideal, compute its standard basis and then perform reductions.
> Any workaround/other way to check dividability.
Depending on what you need, you can use functions "simplify", division "/" or "coef". Please consult the Singular manual for details.
