Should be "1", I get:

-------
Integral is divergent
-- an error. Quitting. To debug this try
DEBUGMODE(TRUE);)
-------

(Spurious ")" at the end of the output too, I just noticed)

Maxima version: 5.9.0

    This is not a bug.
    The right way to write this integral is not:
    - integrate(exp(-x),"x",0,inf);
    which generates the "wrong" output, but is:
    - integrate(exp(-x),x,0,inf);
    The output is 1 in this case, and it is correct.
