Calculus`Integration` in Math 4.1 with Win98


Hi,
Some questions about Calculus`Integration`:
1)
In[1]:= <<Calculus`Integration`
This doesn't work:
In[2]:= Integrate[FractionalPart[t], {t, 0, 5}]
Out[2]= Integrate[FractionalPart[t], {t, 0, 5}]
This works:
In[3]:= Integrate[FractionalPart[t]*Boole[t<Infinity], {t, 0, 5}]
Out[3]= 5/2

Can I avoid to write everytime Boole[t<Infinity] or similar and have the
right answer?

2)
Defining...
In[4]:= ondTri[t_] := 4Abs[t - Floor[t] - 1/2] - 1
This works:
In[5]:= Integrate[ondTri[t]*Boole[t < Infinity], {t, 0, 1/8}]
Out[5]= 3/32
This not:
In[5]:= Integrate[ondTri[t]*Boole[t < Infinity], {t, 0, 0.125}]

Mathematica answers with many error messages ( and sometimes the kernel
crash )
Why?


Thanks,
Raf.
