the new feature bothcases gives a lot of problems:
for example:

Maxima 5.9.1 http://maxima.sourceforge.net
Using Lisp CMU Common Lisp 19a
Distributed under the GNU Public License. See the file
COPYING.
Dedicated to the memory of William Schelter.
This is a development version of Maxima. The function
bug_report()
provides bug reporting information.
(%i1) poissimp(sin(x)**2+cos(x)**2);

Illegal arg to POISSIMP:
x
-- an error. Quitting. To debug this try
DEBUGMODE(TRUE);
(%i2)

while all is correct after

BOTHCASES:FALSE;
also quite often run_testsuite(); give an error and it
seems to have disapeard after having put BOTHCASES to
false.

    After settings BOTHCASES:FALSE;
    it is not possible to refer to a previous line since it
    contains a lower cases charater(%o).

    bothcases is obsolete. The remaining lines of code devoted
    to observing bothcases is scheduled to be expunged from src/
    soon. Closing this report as "won't fix".
