Dear group,

in message <dba4l5$elr$1 at> (07/16 2005), Mukhtar Bekkali
described a problem which involved Root[.] in dependance of a parameter.

This revealed another difference in the Reduce algorithms of versions
5.1 and 5.2.

Please have a look at or

In this case, version 5.1 did the better Job (and faster too).


P.S. the strange looking test for the root being real became necessary,
because Im[#]==0& did not work. (?)
