How does Maxima distinguish between sin^2(%pi) and sin(%pi^2)?
sin(%pi)=0 and then sin^2(%pi)=0, but sin(%pi^2) is not zero.

    sin(%pi^2) is not zero. That is correct. A numerical approximation is

    (%i17) sin(%pi^2),numer;
    (%o17) -0.43030121700009

    Closing this report support request.
