Two workarounds :

```
sage: ((8/9)^t==37).log().log_expand().solve(t)
[t == -log(37)/(2*log(3) - 3*log(2))]
sage: solve((8/9)^t==37, t, algorithm="sympy")
[t == -log(37)/(2*log(3) - 3*log(2))]
```

Curiously :

```
sage: solve((8/9)^t==37, t, to_poly_solve="force")
[]
```

Worse :

```
sage: solve((8/9)^t==37,t, to_poly_solve=True)

This might be a bug...
