Question: Bug in the solve command

If we solve the equation  x^x=1/sqrt(2)  in Maple 2018.2, then Maple returns only one solution  x=1/2 , although this equation has 2 solutions  x=1/2  or  x=1/4 . This can be seen if you plot graphs or , for example, solve by the  Student:-Calculus1:-Roots  command. In this case, the root  x=1/4   is returned only as a numerical approximation. I wonder if this bug has been fixed in the latest versions of Maple?
