    Problem: Prove that the function f(x) = \sin x + \sin(\sqrt2\,x) is not periodic.
    [Hint for solution: The only point where f'(x) = 1+\sqrt2 is x=0.]

    Or the more general problem : if m(x), n(x) are continuous functions having periods P, Q respectively, then m(x)+n(x) is periodic iff P/Q \in \mathbb{Q}.
