sage: (x^2/(1+x)).coefficients() Segmentation fault (core dumped)
gdb shows that this is an infinite recursion in the Pynac library:

 Report Upstream changed from N/A to Reported upstream. Developers acknowledge bug.
The Pynac code does not check if the expression is a polynomial fraction in x
. That case cannot be handled via coefficient()
(the user should expand as a series). I will add a check to prevent this problem.
