Maple: integration bug?

After *hours* of debugging I finally notice the problem with Maple V,
release 3:

> int( t*(1-t), t=0..1);

-1/6

> int( t-t^2, t=0..1);

1/6

Just for your information, the same Maple gives

> int( t*(1-t), t=0.00000001..1);

.1666666667

> int( t-t^2, t=0.00000001..1);

.1666666667

Anyone care to explain this problem --- and how to fix it?

Thanks!
Siman
