5679 solve should convert additional args to SR was burcin "{{{
Some code that used to work in sage-3.0.6 (or something close like
3.0.3), now break with this error message:
>>> R. = PolynomialRing(RR, 3)
>>> solve([symbolic_expression(x0) == 0], x0, x1, x2)
TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting
BUT:
sage: solve([symbolic_expression(x0) == 0], SR(x0), SR(x1), SR(x2))
([{x0: 0}], [1])
The printing problem is due to the fact that Polynomials have an
implicit conversion to sequence types triggered by this code:
try:
variables = tuple(args[0])
except TypeError:
variables = args
near the start of solve(), (Hint: tuple(args[0]) works if the first
variable is a PolynomialElement and thus the rest of the vars are
ignored and you get the bogus ((1.0000000, x0),) tuple as variables)
If that is fixed, then you get this message which does not help much more:
>>> R. = PolynomialRing(RR, 3)
>>> solve([symbolic_expression(x0) == 0], x0, x1, x2)
Traceback (most recent call last):

TypeError: x0 is not a valid variable.
Furthermore, if you disable the type checking that is done on the
input variables, then it works as before:
>>> R. = PolynomialRing(RR, 3)
>>> solve([symbolic_expression(x0) == 0], x0, x1, x2)
[[x0 == 0, x1 == r10, x2 == r9]]
I don't think killing the typecheck is the way to go, but maybe
extending it to cover the polynomial elements.
Or maybe another better way to do this has come up.
