This bug also occurs on my Mac.  It will plot the function but will not
evaluate it.

Integrate[Exp[x]/Log[x], x]

Log::argt: Log called with 0 arguments; 1 or 2
     arguments are expected.

Integrate[E^x/Log[x], x]

Plot[Exp[x]/Log[x], {x, 2, 5}];

(* Plot removed *)

Integrate[Exp[x]/Log[x], {x, 2, 5}]

Log::argt: Log called with 0 arguments; 1 or 2
     arguments are expected.
Log::argt: Log called with 0 arguments; 1 or 2
     arguments are expected.
Log::argt: Log called with 0 arguments; 1 or 2
     arguments are expected.
General::stop: 
   Further output of Log::argt
     will be suppressed during this calculation.
