[Maxima] does solve fail on sin(x)=sin(x) ?

I thought I started to understand the difference of solve, algsys etc. and the
meaning and usage of the switches (like algexact, realonly etc.). As usual
--while doing some school-level maths-- I tried an trivial example for
calculating zeros of a functions:
With "solveexplicit: false" I get
and with "solveexplicit: true"
Hm. Should maxima be able to give the "desired" solution (did I forget some
variable?) or is this a known "bug" (cause the second is clearly false).
I'm using maxima 5.13.0 with clisp 2.41.
Maybe the more experienced users could give me a hint.
Thanks in advance,
