The output was an error message (saying the integral is divergent), just like the one I got in SageMathCell (see link):

So I tried with integrate() and with numerical_integral() as well. I was never able to obtain the value of this integral, which turns out to be $\ln(3)$ after an obvious substitution.
Is this a bug?
Note that replacing 1 by 1.1 yields this:

while we get that when replacing 1 by 2:
