Again, somehow our versions seem to be giving different _symbolic_
answers:

In[1]:= $Version

Out[1]= "6.0 for Linux x86 (32-bit) (April 20, 2007)"

In[2]:= Integrate[TrigToExp[Sin[z]*Sin[z^3 + z]], {z, 0, Infinity}]
N[%]

Out[2]= (-(1/4))*Pi*((2*AiryAi[2/3^(1/3)])/3^(1/3) +
      2/Gamma[-(1/3)])

Out[3]= 0.2957412258497819
