Seemingly erroneous handling of the different nicknames that the keyword dir (direction) the limit function can have. For example,

sage: (1/(x-3)).limit(x=3, dir='below', algorithm='maxima')
Traceback (most recent call last)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'l' referenced before assignment

but breaks for no apparent reason, since:

sage: (1/(x-3)).limit(x=3, dir='below', algorithm='maxima_taylor')


Reported in why is sage calling 1 a variable?
