eq: (4*k^2-4)*y^2 + (4-4*k^2)*y + 6*k^2-1

    This bug has been fixed. Download solve.lisp from

    http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/maxima/maxima/src/

    and either re-build maxima using this version of solve.lisp or load
    this version of solve.lisp from a maxima prompt. After that,
    Maxima should be able to solve your equation.
