Input: (Sqrt(Log[x])^-1 + a*x + b)
Integrate[Sqrt[Log[x]]^(-1) + a*x + b, x] = (x*(2*b + a*x + 4*DawsonF[Sqrt[Log[x]]]))/2

> Another system's unconfirmed answer (in that notation; sorry) (version 5.27.0): -sqrt(%pi)*%i*%e^(-a*x-b)*erf(%i*sqrt(log(x)+a*x+b))
> Strangely, the other system only produces this result when given, say, x(t) in all places for x (including variable of integration).
> I can't seem to get the other system to verify its result symbolically, but when I try random numerical sampling, it does seem to agree, albeit horribly plagued by floating point errors for large x.
> Can anyone offer insight, or possibly prove it's correctness or incorrectness? :)
