Currently, LaurentSeriesRing caches without replacing the default default_prec=None to the global series precision obtainable by sage.default.series_precision() . This leads to the following behavior:

sage: set_series_precision(5)
sage: R.<x> = LaurentSeriesRing(ZZ)
sage: 1/(1-x)
1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + O(x^5)
sage: set_series_precision(3)
sage: R.<x> = LaurentSeriesRing(ZZ)
sage: 1/(1-x)
1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + O(x^5)

Instead, the (second) output should be

sage: 1/(1-x)
1 + x + x^2 + O(x^3)

This is fixed by setting default_prec to the corresponding global series precision *before* caching the parent.

Is fine and passes all tests in rings/ and doc/. Thanks for spotting this.
