### Description (last modified by )

As reported on this ask question, the commands

var('n') assume(n,'integer') integral(x^n*sin(x),x)

produce the output

1/4*(((-1)^n - 1)*gamma(n + 1, I*x) - ((-1)^n - 1)*gamma(n + 1, -I*x))*(-1)^(-1/2*n)

which is identically zero for `n`

even. Possibly an issue with branches of exponential integrals. Possibly related to #17968.
