This is a abs_integrate bug; if you report it, I'll try to fix it.

Is there a way to force Maxima to try to find a real solution to an
integration problem so that it represents the area under the curve in cases
where you get a complex number?
0.22200130530517 - 1.162123315419017 %i
If you plot the integrand it is just a real valued function with a well
defined area under it but in this case it gives a complex number for an
Maxima mailing list
