Bronstein pseudoelliptic

I believe I read somewhere that Bronstein's pseudo-elliptic integral

INT(x/SQRT(x^4 + 10*x^2 - 96*x - 71), x)

= - 1/8*LN(- (x^6 + 15*x^4 - 80*x^3 + 27*x^2 - 528*x + 781)
*SQRT(x^4 + 10*x^2 - 96*x - 71)
+ x^8 + 20*x^6 - 128*x^5 + 54*x^4 - 1408*x^3 + 3124*x^2 + 10001)


could now be solved by Mathematica, but according to the Wolfram
Integrator site, this is still not the case (the integral is still done
in terms of incomplete elliptic F, incomplete elliptic Pi, and Root


A problem with the above elementary antiderivative is a jump near x =
3.531 (where the radicand is negative). Can the logarithm argument be
factored perhaps?
