[GiNaC-list] Bug in expand

I modified the first benchmark at http://www.ginac.de/csSC-0004015.pdf to,

e = expanded value of  (a0 + a1 + sqrt(3)*a2 + sqrt(3)*a3 + ... +

in e, substitute a0 with  -sqrt(3)*a2 - sqrt(3)*a3 - ... - sqrt(3)*a(n-1)

expand e again to obtain a1^2

For n = 4, I get,




which is true, but not the expression I expected. Why are the terms 3*a2^2
and -3*a2^2, not canceled out immediately? Also a term like 2*3*a2^2 means
there is some bug right?

I am using ginac-1.6.3 on Ubuntu 14.10 with gcc-4.9.1. I am attaching the
sample program.
