We report a measurement of the fraction of events with a large pseudorapidity gap Deltaeta within the pseudorapidity region available to the proton dissociation products X in (p) over bar +p-->(p) over bar +X. For a final state (p) over bar of fractional momentum loss xi((p) over bar) and 4-momentum transfer squared t((p) over bar) within 0.063 is found to be 0.246+/-0.001 (stat)+/-0.042 (syst) [0.184+/-0.001 (stat)+/-0.043 (syst)]. Our results are compared with gap fractions measured in minimum bias (p) over barp collisions and with theoretical expectations.
