Bug introduced in 12.0 and fixed in 12.1

After upgrading to mathematica 12, this integral gives the wrong result, also with other types of similar integrals.


The output


is wrong (it should be E^t[2] (-1 + t[2])). Such problem does not exist in previous versions.

PS, I have to use a lot of t[i] in my program, even if I change the [i] to subscripts, the problem is still there.

    $\begingroup$ It is interesting to note that if I pick a variable without index, then it gives you what you expect. In other words, Integrate[blah*Exp[blah], blah] gives (-1 + blah) E^blah as you expect. OK, a new wrinkle: when using the t[2], I notice that it doesn't properly highlight the variables over which we are integrating. $\endgroup$ – Mark R Nov 8 '19 at 0:30

    $\begingroup$ Integrate[t[1] Sin[t[1]], t[1]] fails, but Integrate[t@Hold[2]*Exp[t@Hold[2]], t@Hold[2]] succeeds. $\endgroup$ – Michael E2 Nov 8 '19 at 2:29

Fixed in 12.1
