Description (last modified by caruso)

I guess it is a bug:

sage: k = GF(5) 
sage: H = Hom(k,k)
sage: H2 = Hom(k,k)
sage: H is H2

I don't know what is the correct way to fix this problem.

More precisely, in sage.categories.homset (l. 223-227), one can read:

    # Apparently X._Hom_ is supposed to be cached
    return X._Hom_(Y, category)
except (AttributeError, TypeError):

However, in this particular case, k._Hom_ is apparently not cached. IMHO, caching should be the job of sage.categories.homset.Hom is all cases, but I might be wrong.


  1. trac_13184_sage.5.5.0.beta.patch

Sage does not run with the patch applied:

/home/travis/sage-5.5.rc0/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/sage/categories/homset.pyc in Hom(X, Y, category)
    239         # To be investigated
    240         H = X._Hom_(Y,category)
--> 241         _cache[key] = weakref.ref(H)
    242         return H
    243     except (AttributeError, TypeError):

NameError: global name 'weakref' is not defined

I don't understand exactly why you got this error.

Nevertheless, I noticed that ticket #11521 was merged in sage-5.5.beta0 resulting in some important modifications in sage/categories/ As a consequence, my patch does not apply in versions >= 5.5.beta0. So, I attach a new patch to apply to these recent versions.
