As I recall, there was a Sum issue in 5.2 that caused unexpected Interval results from MeijerG. So the Interval returned by the following input, for example, is incorrect.

FunctionExpand[MeijerG[{{0}, {}}, {{0, 0}, {1/2}}, x]]

For your example, after accounting for the FunctionExpand behavior, I get the following in version 5.2:

In[1]:= expr = Cosh[2*x1]*(CoshIntegral[2*x1] + (Log[(-I)*x1] + Log[I*x1])/2 - Log[x1]) - Log[Abs[x1]] - 

In[2]:= Limit[expr, x1->0]

Out[2]= EulerGamma + Log[2]

In[3]:= Series[expr, {x1,0,2}, Assumptions -> 0<x1<1/100] //InputForm

Out[3]//InputForm= SeriesData[x1, 0, {EulerGamma + Log[2], 0, -3 + 2*EulerGamma + 2*Log[2] + 2*Log[x1]}, 0, 3, 1]

In[4]:= Limit[Normal@%, x1->0]

Out[4]= EulerGamma + Log[2]

In[5]:= Limit[expr, x1->Infinity]

Out[5]= -Infinity

The expression 'expr' above is what FunctionExpand[f[x1]] should have returned.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
