Maxima crashes on relatively simple integral

I'm trying to Maxima-fy my Mathematica box options formula (https://github.com/barrycarter/bcapps...) but Maxima crashes on a fairly simple integration:

load(distrib); 
pdflp(x, p0, v, p1, p2, t1, t2) := pdf_normal(x,log(p0),sqrt(t1)*v); 
cdfmaxlp(x, p0, v, p1, p2, t1, t2) := 1-erf(x/(v*sqrt(t2-t1)/sqrt(2))); 

upandin(p0, v, p1, p2, t1, t2) :=  
 integrate( 
 float( 
 pdflp(x, p0, v, p1, p2, t1, t2)* 
 cdfmaxlp(log(p1)-x, p0, v, p1, p2, t1, t2) 
 ), 
 x, minf, log(p1));

Evaluating upandin w/ certain values crashes:

upandin(1, .15, 1.01, 1.02, 1/365.2425, 2/365.2425);

Maxima encountered a Lisp error: 

 The value 16090668801 is not of type FIXNUM.

Without the float() in upandin, Maxima just leaves the integral in original form.

Can someone help? I thought converting Mathematica to Maxima would be easy, but now I'm not as sure.

The Mathematica version works fine:

pdflp[x_, p0_, v_, p1_, p2_, t1_, t2_] :=  
 PDF[NormalDistribution[Log[p0],Sqrt[t1]*v]][x] 

cdfmaxlp[x_, p0_, v_, p1_, p2_, t1_, t2_] := 1-Erf[x/(v*Sqrt[t2-t1]/Sqrt[2])]; 

(* NIntegrate below "equivalent" to Maxima's float(); no closed form *) 

upandin[p0_, v_, p1_, p2_, t1_, t2_] :=  
 NIntegrate[pdflp[x, p0, v, p1, p2, t1, t2]* 
           cdfmaxlp[Log[p1]-x, p0, v, p1, p2, t1, t2], 
{x, -Infinity, Log[p1]}] 

upandin[1, .15, 1.01, 1.02, 1/365.2425, 2/365.2425]

Even though Sage includes Maxima (primarily as a backend) I think your question would be better answered in a Maxima forum. Try the Maxima Wiki or the Maxima FAQ.
