Question: Why can't Maple solve a simple equation

This question came to me when I answered in this thread

The equation there is quite cumbersome, I extracted a shorter subexpression from it (I converted all floats to exact constants), but the  solve  command hangs when trying to solve it. fsolve  handles the equation easily. We can see that the equation  Eq  is quite simple and easy to solve even by hand. I ask this question in a separate topic, because this seems to be a serious bug in the  solve  command.




Edit. I noticed that the  isolate  command solves the problem, but of course the question remains open with  solve .
