bug in Integrate


In version 6.0, the Integrate function applied to

Integrate[x Exp[-x] Log[x z], {x, 0, Infinity}, Assumptions -> z > 0]

evaluates to 0. Version 5.2 gives the correct result,

1 - EulerGamma + Log[z]. Interestingly, back in version 6.0

Integrate[x Exp[-x] Log[x z], {x, 0, Infinity}, Assumptions -> z == 1]

does evaluate correctly to

1 - EulerGamma

Let's hope this is fixed before the end of Euler's tercentennial.
