limit((tan(sin(x))-sin(tan(x)))/(atan(asin(x))-asin(atan(x))),x,0,plus); Result must be 1, but maxima can't evaluate this.

    Workaround:

    (%i35)
    tlimit((tan(sin(x))-sin(tan(x)))/(atan(asin(x))-asin(atan(x))),x,0,plus);
    Evaluation took 0.0200 seconds (0.0200 elapsed)
    (%o35) 1

    Thanks a lot. It's not a bug. Just limit can't do this, but tlimit can.
