This is not a bug; both solutions are correct. In Maxima's

solution substitute %c --> %c + 1. This makes the two

solutions identical. Since %c is an arbitrary parameter, the

substitution %c --> %c + 1 is okay.

Suggestion: learn how to substitute a putative solution

to an equation (DE or algebraic) into the equation to

check if it is correct.
