Description (last modified by mmezzarobba)

ComplexField_class._element_constructor_ calls x.parent().polynomial() when isinstance(x, NumberFieldElement_quadratic), but not all objects of class NumberFieldElement_quadratic have a number field as a parent. As a consequence, the following conversion (that I guess really should work, since it is suggested by pushout()) fails.

sage: QQi.<i> = NumberField(x^2+1, embedding=CC(0,1))
sage: O = QQi.order(i)
sage: from sage.categories.pushout import pushout
sage: pushout(O, CC)
Complex Field with 53 bits of precision
sage: CC(O.gen(1))

Hmm, the example I gave in the original ticket is not correct, since it sets up an embedding into SR. But the same issue occurs with an embedding into CC. I updated the description to reflect that.

I think the linked patches solve the problem, but I have no idea if the "spirit" of the fix is right. So it would be great if someone who understands the coercion system could have a look!
