Description
The following is a bug:
sage: S1 = Manifold(1, 'S^1') # the circle sage: U = S1.open_subset('U') # the complement of one point sage: Xt.<t> = U.chart('t:(0,2*pi)') # the standard angle coordinate sage: V = S1.open_subset('V') # the complement of the point t=pi sage: Xu.<u> = V.chart('u:(0,2*pi)') # the angle tpi sage: S1.declare_union(U, V) sage: e = S1.vector_frame('e') # a global vector frame (makes S^1 parallelizable) sage: g = S1.metric('g') sage: g[e,0,0] = 1 sage: g[[e,0,0]].display() S^1 > R on U: t > 1 on V: u > 1 sage: g.inverse()[[e,0,0]].display() S^1 > R on U: t > 1
The last output should be
S^1 > R on U: t > 1 on V: u > 1
since the component g^{00} of the inverse metric in the global frame e is the constant scalar field 1, which must have a representation on both open subsets U and V. The current ticket fixes this.

One little thing: you should put the try/except block on the minimal number of lines as it makes for easier maintenance/debugging. So I think it should just include the assignment of gmat
. Otherwise LGTM.

gmat

Done (I've also included the computation of the matrix inverse in the try block).
