# Question:evala(e) still does not equal e

## Question:evala(e) still does not equal e

I'm perplexed by the fact that this bug is not fixed in Maple 2018:

```seq(alias(a[i] = RootOf(_Z1^6-3*_Z1^2-2*_Z1+11, index = i)), i = 1 .. 6);
ee := a[1]*a[5]+a[2]*a[6]+a[3]*a[4];
evala(ee); # wrong
-320/449*a[1]-(16/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]^4*a[3]-(16/449*(a[2]^3))*a[3]*a[1]^2-
(56/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]^3*a[3]-(16/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]^5*a[3]+(32/449*a[2])*
a[3]*a[1]^5-(60/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]^2*a[3]-(256/449*a[2])*a[1]*a[3]+(64/449*
a[2])*a[3]*a[1]^2+(128/449*(a[2]^2))*a[3]*a[1]-(32/449*(a[2]^3))*a[3]*a[1]^3-
(16/449*(a[2]^3))*a[3]*a[1]^4-(24/449*a[2])*a[3]*a[1]^4+(256/449*a[1])*a[2]+
(88/449*(a[1]^4))*a[2]-220/449*a[3]-680/449*a[2]-128/449*(a[1]^4)-(48/449*
(a[2]^2))*a[1]^4-(32/449*(a[1]^5))*a[2]-(48/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]^3+(128/449*
a[2])*a[1]^3-(48/449*(a[2]^3))*a[1]^3+(256/449*(a[2]^3))*a[1]-(32/449*
(a[2]^3))*a[1]^5-(88/449*(a[2]^3))*a[1]^2-(232/449*a[3])*a[2]+(66/449*
(a[2]^2))*a[3]+(130/449*(a[1]^2))*a[3]+(24/449*(a[1]^5))*a[3]+(64/449*
(a[1]^4))*a[3]+(228/449*(a[2]^3))*a[3]+(164/449*a[3])*a[1]^3-(192/449*
a[3])*a[1]-(256/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]-196/449*(a[1]^3)+40/449*(a[1]^5)+110/449*
(a[2]^2)-324/449*(a[2]^3)-18/449*(a[1]^2)+1780/449+(40/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]^2+
(32/449*(a[2]^2))*a[1]^5```

(along with quite a few bugs that are less critical but seem trivial to fix, like INTERVAL(1..2, 3..4) being displayed as INTERVAL(1..2)).

Are the issues reported on MaplePrimes not being looked into by anyone?

EDIT: And now the original post (the first link above) is gone, for which I don't have any reasonable explanation. Here is the post: i.imgur.com/9kIhPz5.jpg. Here is what I'm seeing now: i.imgur.com/yC4cqE3.jpg.
