Description (last modified by chapoton)

Older version of Sage was able to say when it couldn't compute Galois group. However, in 5.4,

NumberField(x^21-2, 'a').galois_group(type="pari").order()

gives answer 252, but with

NumberField(x^22-2, 'a').galois_group(type="pari").order()

I got

Error, the variable '_s_' must have a value

I guess this relates to kash interface.

Tested with 5.10: After trying R.<x>=QQ[]; (x23-2).galois_group().order() I can't calculate for example R.<x>=QQ[]; (x20-2).galois_group().order(). It seems that internal(?) kash instance fails and Sage don't notice it. User must restart worksheet to get this running again.
