[Maxima] problem solving multiple trigonometric equations

Very recently I started using Maxima and already got some usefull results.
However, I now stumbled on a problem with solving mutliple equations involving
trigonometric functions. A simple (not very usefull) example:
(%i1) solve([cos(x) = 1/2, sin(y) = 1/2], [x,y]);
A single equation does work:
(%i2) solve([cos(x) = 1/2], [x]);
`solve' is using arc-trig functions to get a solution.
Some solutions will be lost.
(%o2) [x = ---]
Am I doing something wrong here?
I'm using version:
Maxima 5.13.0 http://maxima.sourceforge.net
Using Lisp GNU Common Lisp (GCL) GCL 2.6.7 (aka GCL)
Thanks in advance!
