Yes, I recall your messages about that. I spent a few minutes trying to
understand why it says that, but I gave up. It wasn't that important to me.
In any case, I can't do that, because the session is gone and I don't
want to wait several more hours to find the integral. :-)
And even if maxima could display it, I don't think it has any use. The
expression is far too complicated, even if it is right.
