  • Cc was added
  • Status changed from new to needs_review

#8220 broke caching which exposed a bug in comparison. In the above example, K and F are not actually equal (different moduli) but Sage thought they were, and pari happily gave 0 for the product between the incompatible underlying elements rather than complaining.
