Question: Is this result for Maple int( 1/(x+sqrt(x)),x) correct?

I am not sure why Maple gives this:

r:=int( 1/(x+sqrt(x)),x);

Using Mathematica and Matlab, the answer should be

   2 Log[1 + Sqrt[x]]

At x=1, Maple result is not defined, since log(0), but Mathematica gives a numerical value for 2*log(2)

Is this a brach cut issue? Could someone please verify this. I am using Maple 17.02

The real part of both solutions agree for x>1, but Maple answer ofcourse has a complex part, and that is what I am wondering about. Is Maple correct, and Mathematica should have returned that? May be a Math expert can comment.
