Description (last modified by vbraun)

Currently, libGAP doesn't give useful errors if something goes wrong during initialization.

Also, the GAP SIGINT handler got installed, this is fixed in the new spkg. Now Ctrl-C works as expected.

Miguel, you said that you had some mysterious error. Can you try this patch? It depends on the recently-updated patches on #6391, #13211.

I have been checking the different updates of libgap, and the error seemed to go away several versions ago. Anyways, i will keep testing it.

I don't know if it is an issue related with this patch or if it comes from libgap itself, but i have experienced some problems when i use tab completion in a session in the command line (i haven't checked it in the notebook).

An example:

sage: F=libgap.eval('FreeGroup(2)')
sage: (a,b)=F.GeneratorsOfGroup()
sage: H=F/libgap([a^2,b^2,a*b*a*b])
sage: H
<fp group on the generators [ f1, f2 ]>
sage: H.IsomorphismSimplifiedFpGroup()
[ f1, f2 ] -> [ f1, f2 ]
sage: H=F/libgap([a^2,b^2,a*b])    
sage: c=H.Gene
H.GeneralLinearGroup      H.GeneralisedEigenspaces  H.GeneralizedEigenvalues  H.GeneratorsOfIdeal
H.GeneralOrthogonalGroup  H.GeneralisedEigenvalues  H.GeneratorsOfField       
H.GeneralUnitaryGroup     H.GeneralizedEigenspaces  H.GeneratorsOfGroup       
sage: c=H.GeneratorsOfGroup()[0]

This same behaviour appears when i don't use this patch, so reported in the libgap ticket.
