Why is there an extra voltage source( of -10^-3 V) in the second diagram?

which I was trying to solve. It is about circuit Analysis and one has to
find Mesh currents from a planar circuit.
In the last step, one has to find the inverse Laplace transform of the two
functions.
I only found out that Gnu Octave takes a huge amount of time to calculate
the inverse Laplace transform of some functions. Yesterday night, I was
going to bed and started the calculation only to find out in the morning
that it was not yet done calculating.

Here is a screenshot:

I got the job done using Wolfram Alpha but, that leaves me a big concern. I
don't know if I can rely on Octave's symbolic calculation abilities if I
happen to encounter a comparable question in my exam and if Octave stalls.
