I tried sympy-0.7.2 on the ten. I got anwers for #2 and #10:

>>> integrate((x*asin(x))/sqrt(1 - x**2), x)
__________
/ 2
x - \/ - x + 1 *asin(x)
>>> integrate((x**3*exp(asin(x)))/sqrt(1 - x**2), x)
__________ __________
3 asin(x) 2 / 2 asin(x) asin(x) / 2 as
x *e 3*x *\/ - x + 1 *e 3*x*e 3*\/ - x + 1 *e
----------- - --------------------------- + ------------ - -------------------
10 10 10 10

in(x)

-----

#4 did not finish after 35 min. The other return unevaluated.
#9 took about 15 min to return unevaluated result, on most
other there was visible delay before answer.

Trying other examples which in principle sympy should do with
no trouble I had to wait few minutes in one case and in
another case sympy run out of memory after few hours.
