Let me repeat: Floor seems to have no trouble with other hairy expressions that happen to equal integers, for example "((-1)^(1/3) + (-1)^(2/3))/Sqrt[-3]". But a mere Simplify reduces that to 1. Perhaps that's where the real bug is. Does Floor try Simplify? Maybe Simplify should be transforming things like Log/Log.
