Description
Observe that the value of chi(1) below depends on whether chi.values()
is called first. Thus there is certainly a bug. I think we should always have chi(1)=1
, since gcd(1,1)=1
; this is also consistent with the rule that if psi is trivial but not primitive, then psi(n)=1
for all n coprime to the modulus of psi.

This was fixed in #14368. In sage6.1.1 we have:
I am adding a bit to the existing doctest to illustrate this.
