The integrals
Integrate[PolyLog[n, Exp[I*(x - y)]], {y, 0, 2*Pi}]
Integrate[PolyLog[n, Exp[I*(y - x)]], {y, 0, 2*Pi}]
should be 0 for all n and for all x.

Mathematica 5.1 gives the correct answer for both integral with
litteral n. But the first one with n=0, n=1 and n=2 is
incorrect, e.g.:

Integrate[PolyLog[0, Exp[I*(x - y)]], {y, 0, 2*Pi}]
-2 Pi;
