I think it shouldn't evaluate the integral. Am I wrong?
Well, I test it's a conflict with the "abs_integrate.mac" package present in my maxima-init-mac. Sorry.
I'll see if I can make abs_integrate respect the quote...
Then perhaps is due to the brackets at the begining and end of the integrate. Without loading abs_integrate, it works without this brackets, but loading this package it doesn't.
Tkanks you very much
Setting the resolution back to none. The bug is still present in Maxima 5.22post.
Assign category = Share Libraries, since this is a bug in abs_integrate, not integrate.
Due to the way abs_integrate works (tellsimpafter), there is no simple fix to the bug. Once an integral is handed off to abs_integrate, the code has no way of knowning that the expression started as a nounform. A fix would, I think, require puting a hook into the main integration evaluation code that would try additional methods. Maybe that would be a good feature for Maxima...
