Doing sin(x) by itself works:

(%i1) limit(sin(x), x, inf);
(%o1) ind

but sin(x)+1/x gives wrong result:

(%i2) limit(sin(x)+1/x, x, inf);
(%o2) 0

    Fixed in limit.lisp

    I've updated my Maxima and rebuilt, but the bug is still present. I don't see
    anything in the log file for limit.lisp that indicates that this bug has been fixed.

    Hmm, it seems to be fixed by commit 5ad2bf71294381da63cafdeded1e5e2de03aa936 from what I can tell. (Rebuilt and now limit(sin(x) + 1/x, x, inf) => ind as expected.)
