Yes, this is a bug. Thanks for having submitted it. I will commit a patch 
to repair this to CVS shortly.

Yes, this works around the bug. It is quite a bit less efficient for large 
adds though. Basically the terms of the add get sorted every time a term 
is added. A faster way would be:

	exvector v;	
	for (size_t i = 0; i<e.nops(); ++i)
	return add(v);

And analogous code for the mul.

Best wishes,
