Hi Andrew,

I've got version 5.1 for Windows; so some results might differ...

Integrate is buggy, when integrating Boole[..].
Please have a look at the attachment to see a plot of h.
It is discontinous at x=2 and x=3 and h' doesn't meet the expectations too.

This misbehaviour can be cured by
SetOptions[Simplify, TransformationFunctions -> {PiecewiseExpand, Automatic}];
