For what it's worth, I get the same error with Mathematica 3.01.1 running
under Win95.

Strangely, if I specify the base E in the Log function, I don't get this
error message, but an incorrect answer.

Integrate[E^x/Log[x, E], x]
Out[12]= -ExpIntegralEi[x] + E^x Log[x]

Differentiating this with respect to x yields E^x Log[x], which the wrong
(the correct answer appears if you use Integrate[E^x/Log[x,-E],x]!!!)

This was an unmodified 'fresh' kernel session, so I'm also perplexed as to
why this is occuring.
