Error comes from simpln. Looks like simpln needs to bind *complexsign* to T and do something intelligent....  >Comment By: Dieter Kaiser (crategus) Date: 20110803 21:11 Message: The error does not come from simpln and not from signlog. Both functions are not called for the example of this bug report. The origin is the the code of the function $sign. A more simple example is (%i1) sign(log(%i)); sign: argument cannot be imaginary; found %i  an error. To debug this try: debugmode(true); Because the expression contains the imaginary unit, the function $sign calls rectform. The result is (%i2) rectform(log(%i)); (%o2) %i*%pi/2 But the sign of an imaginary expression gives an error: (%i3) sign(%i*%pi/2); sign: argument cannot be imaginary; found %i  an error. To debug this try: debugmode(true); For the example of this bug report Maxima tries to get the sign of the following expression: (%i4) rectform(log(%i/(1+%i))); (%o4) %i*%pi/4log(2)/2 Again, the sign on an imaginary expression gives an error. At this point we might argue that it is not a bug to get an error. It is the design of the function $sign not to accept imaginary expressions.
