William,
sage told me to report you, thus I do:
[... see below]
For the particular curve you're considering mwrank (via sage's rank command)
can compute the rank -- which is what you want -- in 0.5 seconds, so maybe
you can use .rank() instead?
{{{id=24|

That said, the fact that e.torsion_order() fails is certainly a bug:
{{{id=29|
e.torsion_order()
