i think this is not a bug
if b!=3 these equations are inconsistent indeed.

On
Maxima 5.9.3.99rc4 (which I guess is
almost identical to 5.10)
compiled with
sbcl for Ubuntu
solve([a=b,b=3],[a])
produces
-------------------
Maxima encountered a Lisp error:
Error during processing of --eval option "(cl-user::run)":
The value 2 is not of type LIST.
Automatically continuing.
To reenable the Lisp debugger set *debugger-hook* to nil.
------------------
I think solve should work also when
the number of equations is different from
the number of unknowns.
Other people have the same problem with
different configurations.
For example Maxima 5.10.0 + sbcl or clisp.
Some people have reported:
Maxima 5.10.0 + gcl->"Inconsistent equations"
(no Lisp error)

No problem with Maxima 5.17post on Windows with GCL 2.6.8 and CLISP 2.44 and Ubuntu with CLISP 2.44.
(%i68) solve([a=b,b=3],[a]);
(%o68) []
(%i69) solve([a=b,b=3],[a,b]);
(%o69) [[a = 3, b = 3]]
Closing this bug report.
