Dear All,

Do you confirm the following as a bug of Wxmaxima

(%i15) eq: 1/x=0;
(%o15) 1/x=0
(%i16) solve(e,x);
`solve' is using arc-trig functions to get a solution.Some solutions
will be lost.
(%o16) [x=-%pi/2,x=%pi/2]

?

Maxima itself does the following:

(%i4) eq: 1/x;
                                       1
(%o4)                                  -
                                       x
(%i5) solve(eq,x);
(%o5)                                 []
(%i6)

which is correct.

Thanks in advance,

Paul
