Integral that should converge, but Mathematica says it does not

May be someone who knows math better than me can look at this.
Integrate[x/(1 + (x^6*Sin[x]^2)), {x, 0, Infinity}]
Mathematica says
Integrate::idiv: Integral of x/(1+x^6 Sin[x]^2) does not converge on {0,\[Infinity]}. >>
But according to this post in the Math group
http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/245461/convergenceofanimproperintegralwithtrigfunction/245515#comment541244_245515
someone showed that it does converge.
Just thought to ask someone here for a second look. If you think also this should converge, and the proof shown in the above link is correct (it seems to be, but again, I am not a math major), I will send a bug report to WRI
