Description
If I type
sage: MS = MatrixSpace(QQ,6,6,sparse=True); MS Full MatrixSpace of 6 by 6 sparse matrices over Rational Field sage: MS?
Then sage hangs eating all the memory. I don't have the less idea why it happens with MatrixSpace. I didn't try very hard but I can't manage any other request with the same effect. I checked that this is not a problem of installation on my computer: It happens as well on boxen. Though, on the contrary to my own computer, I didn't check that it effectively eat all the memory on boxen ;-)
Cheers,
Florent

I can confirm this bug on the command line. However, not interestingly that it does *not* happen in the Sage notebook. So it is an Ipython bug.
So what should we do ? Try to figure out a smaller file that triggers the problem and report to the ipython community ? I've no idea how to debug ipython. Any better suggestion ?

IPython is swallowing the kbd interrupt, but the bug is in sage, it's the fact that len(MS) never returns: sage: MS = MatrixSpace(QQ,6,6,sparse=True); MS Full MatrixSpace of 6 by 6 sparse matrices over Rational Field sage: len(MS) ^C--------------------------------------------------------------------------- KeyboardInterrupt Traceback (most recent call last) /home/fperez/ipython/repo/kernel-config-lp/docs/<ipython console> in <module>() /opt/sage/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sage/structure/parent.so in sage.structure.parent.Parent.__len__ (sage/structure/parent.c:5533)() /opt/sage/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sage/structure/parent.so in sage.structure.parent.Parent.list (sage/structure/parent.c:4995)() /opt/sage/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix_space.pyc in __iter__(self) 751 while True: 752 for iv in sage.combinat.integer_vector.IntegerVectors(weight, number_of_entries): --> 753 yield self(entries=[base_elements[i] for i in iv], rows=True) 754 755 weight += 1 /opt/sage/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix_space.pyc in __call__(self, entries, coerce, copy, rows) 371 copy = False 372 elif self.__is_sparse and isinstance(entries, (list, tuple)): --> 373 entries = list_to_dict(entries, self.__nrows, self.__ncols, rows=rows) 374 coerce = True 375 copy = False /opt/sage/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sage/matrix/matrix_space.pyc in list_to_dict(entries, nrows, ncols, rows) 1240 d[(row,col)] = x 1241 else: -> 1242 d[(col,row)] = x 1243 return d 1244 /opt/sage/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sage/interfaces/get_sigs.pyc in my_sigint(x, n) 7 8 def my_sigint(x, n): ----> 9 raise KeyboardInterrupt 10 11 def my_sigfpe(x, n): KeyboardInterrupt: It seems that the ms object implements __len__, but this function never returns.

Good remark ! This indicate that there should be a generic test in the base category Objects() checking that for the current object __len__ is either not defined either returns a correct int object or else raise an exception. Any other behavior (loop, returning a sage Integer or any fancy object should be reported as an error).
Those bugs seems therefore catchable by TestSuite if the object correctly inherits from the good category. I'll try it.
Otherwise positive review.
